What is this and why does it stink?

8 years ago

I noticed several weeks ago that my laundry room would stink whenever I do laundry. I cleaned/sanitized both my washer and dryer and when that didn't help, I got behind them to investigate. I discovered the smell was coming from this PVC pipe in the wall. I never even noticed it was there before this. My house is around 14 years old and I've been in it for 5 years. I didn't have a pipe in my old laundry room and my mother doesn't have one in hers. Why is it there and what would cause it to stink all of a sudden?
