run a washing machine on hot feed only?

alright so on my DIY quest to remove another rubber band from the washing machine pump i sheared the cold feed.
nothing like an explosive spray of mains pressure cold water to revive you

now i assume i can run the machine on hot feed only for tonight,until i can buy a replacement tomorrow?

Re: run a washing machine on hot feed only?

swap the hot n cold valves over, then run on just cold, i dont reckon it will work on just hot, it will get stuck on rince when it needs the cold water.

Re: run a washing machine on hot feed only?

Correct, swap hose to cold feed only - lower temperature washes will work fine. Rinses use cold water only, so machine would hang up waiting for water. And don't just connect the hot to the cold valve - you'll shrink stuff!
