My parents have a Roper washing machine and they say the cold water will not shut off after it fills up but the hot water will. They’ve been manually shutting off the cold when doing laundry. Is this something easy to fix? I told them if it needed a part I’d need the model # of the washing machine. If it does need a part, can you tell me about how much the part would cost also recommend a place to order it?
Thanks for any advice on this.

Cold 1/2 of the fill valve mechanically sticking open = new fill valve time.

Probably.

Most likely.

A common Roper one...
