Question about Washing Machines
This is the way it was designed. cold water will not dissolve the detergent in the dispenser completely. if you want cold water only then connect cold water to both the hot and cold connections in the back of the machine.

Get as much as you can out with a towel, then flush the rest with cold water. Just pour it in and dry it out with a towel until you are able to pour water in it and it go out the dispenser like normal. After you have gotten the dispenser cleaed out you will need to get the detergent out of the machine before using it. Start a cycle with cold water. Let it start washing, when you see suds forming pour in a little vegetable cooking oil. This will kill the suds. Keep doing this through the cycle. After the suds are gone and the cycle is done, run it through another cycle with hot water. If you have no suds you are done. If It still suds up by the end of that cycle, run the cold wash and vegetable oil again.
You should be ok by running one cold and one hot, just watch it and add a little oil to kill the suds.
The cooking oil trick works with dishwashers too if you ever put the wrong detergent in them.
Please reply if you need any more help.
