Can I connect a dishwasher to this pipe?

I’m unsure what the red cap is... the white plastic tubing leads to outside as a drainage no water currently flows through these pipes... if I remove the white plastic tubing and connect a dishwasher.. What happens if I turn the red cap. Is that how you turn the water on /off or will it expose another pipe....

    Since I can't see a red cap, I can't help you. I can see blue on the end of a pipe, that s indirectly connected to a plastic pipe, so that is a drain anyways. Your added pic shows it just draining out to the street, can't drain a dishwasher like that. Dirty water just pumping out into the street is not ideal.

    I think it for draining down your pipework in an emergency

    (I am guessing this is for a flat?) so not a good place to connect your dishwasher.

      Yeah it’s a flat. Thank you I didn’t know it was for emergency drainage
