Have a customer with the above machine Miele W1986
showing intermittent F6/F7 faults that she states only
happens when she's washing towels.

Those faults are for water inlet and drain

She uses the same setting for all clothes types
set to 120 degree rinse

The "rinse" is where the fault occurs so i'm
assumming that the problem is in one of the valve
but that has nothing to do with the load size which she insistes
is a factor.

Component check in dignostics reveals no problems

Anyone happen to have this problem before?

set to 120 degree rinse


I believe that is the wash temperature - yes, sounds like a cold water valve (the tripple one) issue. Since the towels have a higher absorbtion rate, and the rinse level is higher than wash, it sounds as if it is timing out before it gets to the rinse level due to a partially blocked valve

Good thinking !!! Makes sense ...thats probably why it isn't showing on the component check either.

Not sure, haven't been there yet. I doubt it though, been working properly for 6 years.
