Please just an aside question

Just an aside since i am still learning ,why " Tu feras tes devoirs pendant que je ferai la vaisselle " and not ....."je ferai les vaisselle"?

This relates to:
Using Le Futur after "quand" and "pendant que" instead of Le Présent -

Bonsoir Sharon,
according to the Collins-Robert the word vaisselle is used singularly but has a plural sense to it.


dishes (= crockery collectively) = la vaisselle 


There are a few other words in French where this is the case.
