Question about Dishwashers
Got 04 err code drying damper not working. Can't find a diagram of what it is or how it works or where it is located. Is it eletrical vent or fan? Does the dishwasher need to come out of the cabinet to get to it?

I found this elsewhere on the net. Seemed to work for me. You need 2 pairs of hands though 1 to hold things together the other to work the screw driver. Thanks to Peter.
I had the same problem on my Miele Dishwasher. Basically the outlet built into the door gets gummed up. You can access it by undoing the screws around the edge of the inside of the door. This will allow you to release the front door cover from the inner stainless steel cover and there will be the tubes etc. for the front vent. Take them off and you will find them blocked with gunge. Give them a jolly good clean so it allows the condensation to drain back into the machine . You will also find the fan in there as well. Clean all around that as well if it's dirty. Put it all back together and no more gurgling or water on the floor when the doors opened. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Miele dishwasher drying problem
you need to remove the front of the door.there is a small pipe from the dryer fan to the top of the detergent dispenser. tis usualy gets blocked at the fan end. also the spout from the fan. this happens if you dont rinse loose food of the items you put in the dishwasher.

The energy efficiency that has so much attention by the EPA has made it so that they probably will not dry completely any longer. Has the unit ever dried completely before? If it hasn't, then the only thing you can do is adjust your dishes so the water will not stand in the bottoms of cups, etc.
You might also check your heated dry "feature" on your dishwasher to assure that it has been selected to dry at optimum heat temperature. Also, do not open the dishwasher before the drying cycle has been completed.
Bosch has the best drying dishwasher model made so when it's time to replace this unit, choose a higher end Bosch for the best drying and the quietest models available.

I had the same issue but mine is an inbuilt unit. I removed the 4 screws for the front main facia panel which was then removed. Following this I removed the 6 screws that hold the plastic control cover in place and then the three screws (1 top centre and 1 on left and right) that holds the control plate which I then gentrly lowered.
I then used a flat blade screw driver to turn the inside fan cover anti clockwise about 45 degrees which allows the fan module to be removed. Then disconnected the drain pipe at the fan module only and power and control cables.
I then blew the gunk out of the fan module and gave this a good wash through with hot water to ensure it was clean and then dryed with paper towel. I then also blew out the drain pipe. The remaining gunk was blown into the interior of the dish washer out a vent just below the rinse aid unit.
If I need to do this again then I would have removed both ends of the pipe and washed this through with hot soapy water to make sure it was clean.
To reassemble do the reverse process. Assistance will probably be required to reassemble the front main facia panel as one person would need two hands to hold in place and another to locate and start the screws. A couple of clamps could over come this.
