Customer Question
Hi there, I've only...

Hi there, I've only one input under sink and hot and cold pipes from back of washing machine. Can I run it without a stopper over the hot outlet in back of washing machine? Plumber can't come till next week..

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Hotpoint aquarius extra.. Over 5 years

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Wma37

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I just want to know if it's safe to use it now or will water leak from the hot outlet?

You will need to put a cap on the hot water inlet side of the valve or it will leak out of the washer water valve.
