How to seal waste trap adaptor?

    Please can someone offer me a little advice?

    Just moved into a new place and attached the washing machine, which works fine.

    But, under the sink, the waste pipe has two waste trap adaptors - similar to the solo adaptor shown in the attached picture (am guessing one is for a dishwasher or waste-disposal unit, whatever - neither of which we have).

    Unfortunately, when my washing machine empties, some of the water escapes through the opposite waste trap adaptor.

    Do I just Duct tape it up or can I purchase an end cap from somewhere (if so, what is it called and from where? Only options I have are B&Q or amazon or ebay).

    Thanks.

    Bung it or replace with a blank disc that normally comes with some traps.
