Does mains need to be turned off when disconnecting washing machine?

Hi, does the mains water supply need to be turned off when disconnecting a washing machine with one cold water inlet pipe or is switching the cold water inlet supply valve off enough. I cannot find my mains water tap, it's not under the sink and boiler has 3 taps attached... Confusing.

It should have an isolation valve where the washing machine pipe is connected therefore the mains don’t need to be off .

No not usually, unless there is somehow no washing machine tap (which is isolation) or the isolation is not working correctly.
