Question about Miele Dishwashers
During the last part of the drying cycle the fan is very noisy. Repair agent advises that a new unit would cost 300 pounds, and that it would be OK to leave this one until it finally stops working. Can anyone suggest a way of dealing with this problem that does not involve replacing the fan unit, which is obviously uneconomic. There is not any spillage of water, as described in some other posts on this site.

SOURCE: noisy dishwasher
An aging water-inlet valve can sometimes fail slowly, rather than all at once. It can shudder on and off rapidly, causing the incoming water lines to shake, rumble, and rattle--sometimes violently. If yours is doing this, replace the inlet valve.
Motor If it's the motor that's noisy, either of these may be the "culprit:"
Pump Small fruit pits, toothpicks, and fragments of glass sometimes get stuck in the pump. When this happens, open the pump and remove the debris. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher.
To get to the pump, you usually need to remove the lower rack, the spray arms, and the spray arm support from the inside of your dishwasher. A dishwasher pump isn't obvious. Look for an impeller--a round, plastic fan blade-type device that spins around and pushes the water toward the drain. When you can see the drain impeller, you should be able to see the clogging debris.

Have you got your dishwasher on an extended drying cycle?
Normally it works for about 10 minutes after the wash cycle is complete - not hours.

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.
