Moving washer and dryer to garage. Drain Help


Just bought a house and the W&D are currently in the kitchen. I would like to move them to the garage. I have opened up some drywall in the garage and there is water hookups, drain and gas line in the the garage already. It looks like the W&D was once there. In the picture you can see that the drainpipe has a coupling towards the bottom. Do I just need to add a wye and p-trap there for my drain?

Is that drain just picking up the washer now. I myself would cut in a tee with the trap going to a washer box and put a aav off the top with a louvered vent for access

Is that 2" pipe? If so--Add a P-trap and riser to the pipe where the rubber coupling is-----and a washing machine box and I think you are set---the line appears to be vented ---

Yes, exactly that---there is a 'washer box' that would be attached to the top of the pipe--and has hot and cold water feeds---much neater than a stand pipe.
