When we initially hooked up the machine we did not have a hot water line running to it. Now one has been hooked up but no water flows into the machine. The machine will turn itself off after a few minutes. If I attempt to use the warm setting only cold water runs into the machine.
First thing to do is to check the filter screens in the hoses if they have them second check the screen at the machine hot inlet. If your home has galvanized piping flakes of rust could have clogged the screens. Same goes for the hot side washer bib (faucet) if rust has clogged or any other type of debris you will not get any water.

Code A09 means there is a problem with the water supply. Ensure your water is turned on completely, unplug the machine for 1 minute and then plug it back in. If the code persists, you should turn off the water and remove the supply lines. There is usually a filter in one end of each hose or at the water valve hookup. Ensure that the filter is clean and replace it. If you have done this and you know that you have good water flow through the supply hoses, I would suspect the water valve solenoid(s) as being defective.
possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors
due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program
controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN
pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from
the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the
water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the
voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no
voltage from the controller. This means
the controller is a suspect.
water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the
inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the
inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL
SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level
to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is
most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must
be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for
rinse and wash.
Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, start machine. Now there should be twice the flow of water than there was with HOT and COLD temps. I suspect it is the HOT side of inlet water valve that has failed because machines usually rinse with COLD water.
It sounds like you may have unwelded the suction line to the compressor and blew the compressor out. That is not good. How a Taylor works is this: Compressor comes on and produces a lot of heat. There are 3 ways to dissipate the heat. If there is a big radiator like set of copper and aluminum finned coils near the compressor it is air cooled. If there is a water line going in and a drain line coming out, it is water cooled, the water runs the whole time the compressors are running, the third way is to have an outside remote condenser coil. I believe you have a water cooled machine. On the back of the machine is a copper fitting to hook up the incoming water lline. There is also a drain line and water will flow constantly from it if everything is running alright. It is ok for the compressor to get hot when running, it is supposed to get hot. If you broke into the freon lines by mistake, the freon is gone and it won't show pressure anymore. I don't see any way that oil would have gotten into the water cooling line. To verify which is the cooling water, the copper lines will go into the back of the machine and will be wrapped around the outside of the compressor and then back to the drain at the back of the machine. If you blew the oil out of the compressor it will very soon lock up and be destroyed. Look at the line that you cut into.
Thanks for using FixYa. Error NF means No Fill. The washer has tried to fill but was unsuccessful. NF indicates No Flow. There is something that is interrupting the inbound flow of water to the washer, either hot or cold. Sometimes this happens when water service in the area is interrupted, creating an air pocket that causing the water valve not to sense water.
Try running the diagnostic test by—
Press the delicates and heavy soil keys together for 3 seconds.
You are in the service mode.
Now, press wrinkle free key, cold water should start entering.
Then, press the cotton sturdy and hot water should flow.
To exit the test mode, either unplug the machine or press the delicate and heavy soil again for 3 seconds.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Make sure the washer water line is hooked to the hot water supply line in the house. If it takes a while to get hot water when you turn on the sink faucet, it will take longer to bring hot water to the washer due to the lower flow volume. If you bring hot water to the faucet first, then start the machine, it should solve this problem. The washer's heater should then raise the temperature to final requirements. Hope this helps!
HI Its your flow meter. If you have a restriction in the intake line the message will not go away. There is a flow meter inside the machine that measures water flow. If the flow meter does not spin when the pump is running, the computer thinks that the pump is not primed. Coffee grounds will get into the intake and restrict the flow meter. If you get a restriction in the water intake (below the water tank, on the machine) the pump may run and water comes out, but the flow meter does not create the jet of water to spin the turbine wheel to send impulses to the computer. You get the ventilate message. You need to take the flow meter apart and clean it or replace it.
Based on your description, the selenoid is bad.
The same device feeds both cold and hot water - so locate your machine model number and year.. and look up the replacement incoming water selenoid part number. You will need to purchase it and replace it.
If your machine is under warranty, call their Customer Service line and report the water flow/noise problem.
Don't try running the machine without water, as I suspect you can burn out the pump. Our machine wasn't getting enough water, so we removed the water intake valve and cleaned out a bit of grit that came thro the water line. If you are hooked up to a well system, there is always the chance the valve's screen can be clogged. Do you have excessively hot water? A repairman told me that after about 5 yrs, water intake valves have a rubber part (washer?) that expands with the heat and blocks the water from flowing into the machine. This turned out to be our problem - it's an easy part to replace. As for an almost new machine, this hardly seems possible. Sorry I can't be more help.
its in your cold water line valve to the washer if it works good with hot water the valve are incoming line being blocked when you turn it on the pressure comes in fast then when pressure is gone water slows down so when its off the pressure builds back up it runs fast then slow
