I have recently purchased a new cold fill washing machine.

I have recently purchased a new cold fill washing machine. The hot water tap under the sink has started to drip water. Should I turn this tap off? Thank you. Stephen XXXXXXX.

If the hot water isn't connected to the machine, how is the end blanked off?
As it's a cold fill machine then there is no requirement for the hot water valve to be on.
If turning it off cures the problem then, yes, turn it off and leave it turned off.
Hope this helps
