Washing machine pipes
 
My current washing machine has just packed up and this has a hot and cold imput pipe. Was looking for a new machine and can only find cold water fill machines if i was to get a cold fill machine what would i do about the hot pipe that i have as this will not be needed?

Any help much appreciated thanks :)

If you choose a washing machine with just a cold water connection, you can get a metal screw on cap to cover the hot water hose connection that is unused.

I wouldn't rely on a screw on cap with a washer. Is there not a valve there where you attach the hose you can shut off?

Sounds kind of strange that you can"t find a washer with both hot and cold hose connections..I don"t know where you are located but you should be able to find an appliance store, Sears,Home depot or a Lowes that would have a machine with both hot and cold...

Been looking on argos website and they all say cold water fill so presumed that they were only cold fill.
