Lift the top of your washing machine by unscrewing the back or remove the back and you will find a code and test sheet inside, you normally will find it at the top edge of the machine from or back. Very easy to use if followed to a T.
I think your hunch is probably correct. "nf" is "no fill" or "slow fill" so if the machine is in a cold enough location it likely has frozen supply lines or inlet water valve. About all you can do is slowly warm the area around it with a space heater or wait until Spring. I wouldn't try to warm it in a day though. Frozen pipes that are thawed too quickly can break, leaving you with a real mess on your hands, possibly even structural damage to the property. All you need to do is get the temps above freezing, it doesn't need to be balmy. If you use an electric heater make sure it is well away from combustibles and the machine if possible. When water lines break they tend to spray where they want so keep that under consideration when placing the heater and make sure it's off the floor. If i started warming the room today i wouldn't even try to use the machine for a week. And i'd babysit it as much as humanly possible. Good luck.
If the water valve is shut at the meter, the only other place water can come from is the house itself, and at that, there should be no pressure.
If water is melting in the piping, if a valve is open at a sink or if a toilet tank is not full, air can get into the system and water will drain at the lowest open point. Your washer electric valve has to be open, too.
It could well be that the water is still frozen in the inlet pipe/s, you will have to wait until it warms up a bit more.
The noise you can hear is probably the inlet valve/s energising, but unable to let the water in.

I don’t know what machine you have but the newer energy efficient
machines do take far longer to complete a wash because they are basically cold
fill. Part of the wash cycle is incorporated in the heating stage. Companies
are all striving for the prestigious ‘A’ rating on Energy, Wash and spin, but in doing so have to
increase the wash time. Sounds wrong it’s how it works! If you need a free user

Yes, this is normal. All newer washer have auto temp control fills. This is to meet energy saving requirements. The less hot water used the more energy saved. Most hot settings on washers give out basically lukewarm water. The detergent made today is made to work well with cooler temperature water, so things will still come out clean.
