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?
