English term or phrase:kitchen sink
Busco tŽrmino universal -- para todos los variantes del espa–ol.
Explanation: I believe that pileta fits better into the context, if you are talking of the place where you wash the dishes.
Fregadero would be the large sink where you wash the clothes, which sometimes is also in the kitchen, but generally in another room. Fregadero in any case would be a Mexican word, since this last sink is called "pileta de lavar ropa" in Argentina.
Creo que hay que usar 'pileta'. Yo siempre digo 'fregadero', pero reconozco que corresponde al uso mexicano. "lavaplatos' para nosotros o es el empleado que lava los platos o el aparato elŽtrico. Gracias, David 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
