Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 4 months ago

You need to get a Y-connection to split the cold water so it goes to both the hot and cold water inlet settings. If something isn't hooked up to the hot water receptacle, the inlet water will backflow and cause a leak. Just put a Y-connection on the end of your hose and connect cold water to both receptacles and you'll be good to go again.
