Being a new homeowner, and growing up in the least of handy households, I am pretty clueless about the workings of a house. I have been reading and reading the last 2 weeks as much as i can.

I plan to get my basement finished off and need to move my washer/dryer. The washer is currently tied into a stack that runs into the DWV.

The washer will actually be closer now to the DWV, approximatly 2 feet....can i just run a length of pipe, into a P-trap then into a san tee into the DWV?

Does this need to be vented? if so, where?

AS it currently is, if i can tie right into the DWV, the current cleanout of the DWV will be above the tie this a non issue since i have a clean out on the ptrap of the washer?

ok onto my gas Q. I need to move my dryer as well, however working with gas makes me hella nervous. Ive read to just shut off the main gas in and bleed the system. I assume just running the stove burners would suffice, am i correct?

also do i need to turn the HWH and furnace to an off position and relight the pilots when i get the gas line moved?

thanks all, again sorry for the ignorance of the Questions, all this is new to me and i want to gather as much info as i can before doing anything.
