Hot water tank removed for replacement. New 3/4” ball valve replaced but left hanging there unconnected and doesn’t leak. So far so good…

THEN when I turn on the washer with COLD water, it fills normally EXCEPT, water starts running out of the 1/2” pipe which should be for hot water that would be exiting the hot water tank IF there was one connected.

I’m trying to find out if something else is wrong somewhere else before proceeding on with installation of the new hot water heater…. Any scope of help would be certainly appreciated. Thank you so much!

The washing machine cold is crossing over to the hot side. May be normal may not. Is the washer set to cold only? Rinse and wash?
