SOURCE: Dishwasher fan fills with water
Well, I just took my hose out (pulled both ends off the connectors) and it was indeed full of junky cruddy muck, so blew it out over a waste bin until it ran clear through. Now I've put the hose back on and will see what happens next wash!

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.

if you remove the door panel you will see a small hose from the fan to the combi dispener. Remove this and blow through it. Also connect it to the combi dispener and blow and then to the fan end and blow. Food and muck block the pipe and the excess water cannot escape back into the unit so instead it pours out the vent. you will find the fan is then quieter.

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.

You have the Miele problem.
This happens every year or two. Take off the outside front panel to access the hose that runs from the bottom of the fan down to the dispenser, and lets the water drain out through it to the interior. Clean out that hose as well as you can. Replace. This is a stupid problem that Miele should have a permanent fix for. Grrrr.
In fact I just did this with mine today. The hose cleans out quickly, the problem is getting the front back on. 4 hands make it easier. It slips on when you start close to vertical, then slip in in and down. For putting the screws back in, you might have to use a micro screwdriver to re-align the little clips on the door panel. (You will see what I mean when you do it!) This costs a service call ($100, give or take) to call for service. It can be done at home with no added parts. I think it applies to all Miele dishwashers, and I have now done it several times. As I said before, this is a design fault and should not be necessary!
If you have a helper to help contain the mess, you can spray water into the fan area (best is backward through the hose, but try all directions) and catch the runoff. We have done this and it catches a lot of gunk.muck and slop.
Doggone design sucks on an otherwise nice machine!!
