How to install washing machine to basement?

My friend is planning to remove his washer and dryer to the basement.
His planned new location is about 15 feet away from the current position, because it is easy to add a T on the sewer pipe. I told him he might need a venting pipe. Not sure if I am correct.

Is vent needed by code for a washing machine ? I understand sewer pipe should have venting outlets somewhere, but not at the new location. Thank you in advance.

Yes. A vent is required on a drain. It is best to make sure where they put the tee that it is correct.
