an external pump for washing machine

I want to relocate my washer dryer but dont want to rip apart everything for the relocation of the drain valve
Is there a external pump I can get that operates like a condensate pump beside a furnace?

OR. Can I just simply run a 10 foot hose up into the ceiling and drop down into the drain?

Also.. Is there some code violations if i put a Y on the hot and cold water in/out from the hot water tank?

New W/D location is beside that...

No... you can't extend the washer drain line to the ceiling and just stick it in a pipe.

The proper way is to install a wash sink with a powered pump to the drain line.

A "Y" on the water heater ? This needs clarification.

A tee on the hot and cold side of a water heater or a sink faucet ?

You may not splice onto the end of a washing machine drain hose or dishwasher drain hose without danger of overloading the pump inside the machine.

You can install a laundry sink without faucets next to the washing machine to receive the washing machine waste water as fast as the machine wants to deliver it while a drain pump (ejector pump) under the sink sends the water to a drain as slow as that pump wants to.
