You will always have a cold water supply, as some washing machine's only need a cold water supply, whereas some require hot and cold. I would pressume the cold water supply tap is there somewhere. If not cold water supply hoses are easy to fit and fairly cheap. They do one in B&Q for £8.99 I think

OK, what you need to do is pull the machine out, check what hoses it has going into it, it will be either blue or blue & red.

If it's blue only and your machine wont do a cold wash it's likely that your machine is faulty.

If you have blue & red check the tap for the cold inlet is fully open and that there are no kinks in the pipe.

First check the blue hose from the back of the machine is actually providing cold water.

Turn the tap off, disconnect the pipe from the back of the machine and put it in a bucket. Turn the tap on.

If the water is hot you've just connected the pipe to the wrong tap.

follow the hose from the machine to the pipes. There should be a little tap.
Is there a similar tap on the cold pipe. (if you can feel the pipes, you can tell which one is which.)

If there is a tap on the cold pipe, ....turn the tap off on the hot,..... screw the hose off and put it on the cold tap.....Turn the tap on slowly to make sure there is no leaks.
Make sure you dont lose the black rubber washer inside the hose.

That's your problem then

You will have a cold supply somewhere, I presume your washing machine is in your kitchen if so it usually goes onto the same pipe that your sink is connected to.

So look under your sink and follow the pipe from the cold tap back and you will find another connection on there somewhere.

So you only have a cold water feed. But the water gets too hot in the machine. The machine will heat the water up, its part of the routine. You set what temperature your machine will work at on the front of the machine. Unless you think it is overheating the water which would suggest your thermastat (in the machine) is defective
