Washing Machine Drain Hose

It is hard to believe that this has not been asked before, but I can't find it. I want to move a washing machine 2 or 3 feet to the side. Is it legitimate to add an extension to the drain hose? I would rather not move the drain standpipe unless absolutely necessary.

Not an appliance expert, but if it was me I would do it. I don't see where there would be much extra strain on the pump to get the water another 3 feet.
