Doing laundry with cold water only and do not need the hot water. I've disconnected the hot water hose from the hot water supply and wanting to use only the cold water inlet. when I start the washer, water comes out of the hot water side. Do I need to cap off the hot water inlet?

Hi,

Yes.

I've disconnected the hot water hose from the hot water supply

Newer machine might notice this and object giving a fault or just shutting off. Many machines add some hot water to the cold fill if the cold fill is too cold (under 80ºF).
