Hooking up dishwasher.


Basically trying to hook up a dishwasher. Want to know if that unused PVC pipe is a drain line or vent stack.

I understand none of what you said. I'm a carpenter. I stay away from plumbing. This is a close up.

Looks like a cleanout. Leave it be and install a DW tailpiece.

Its 2 drains coming down from either sink going to a t. With a spacer in the middle ( i assume for a y fitting for dishwasher) Then to the trap with a cap on bottom to drain out. Then into the wall.
