Installing a washer away from vent stack and main drain

I want to install a full-size washer in a room next to kitchen. Can I connect the washer drain to the drain of the kitchen sink, or will there be a sizing/capacity/flow issue? And I understand draw vents are illegal in many cases, but I can't get to main vent stack from this room. What are my options for venting? The washer will be against an exterior wall. Can I create some kind of vent to the outdoors in this room? Sorry I think you can see I have a lot to learn.

Thanks for everybody's time!

You will definitely have a flow issue.

Thanks Pulpo. What size drain is required for a full-size washing machine? If I have a laundry tub to drain into first, that should avoid the flow issue, correct?

You can drain it into a slop sink first. Otherwise, washing machine drains are 2 inches.
