hot/cold water supply for washing machines

My new washing machine only uses a cold water feed unlike my old one which used hot & cold feeds.

I want to get rid of the hot water feed pipe but first I need to know if all washing machines now only need a cold water feed or does it vary from manufacturer to manufacturer?

I don't want to get rid of the pipe only to find that my next washing machine needs both feeds lol :oops:

Yes, with the exception of Whirlpool machines, all machines are cold fill only, i'd leave the hot water feed there though and just blank it off, it's not harming anything, besides which, you never know when they'll go back to both feeds!
