Your nozzles could be clogged or the percolator itself is clogged. Try to stick a toothpick into the nozzles to clear up any blockages, then perform a descale on the system using 2 large tablets. Make sure the tablets dissolve completely, if not you risk the chance of clogging the whole system.
The coffee system must be descaled regularly. The time period depends on the water hardness set. The appliance will display a reminder message and will eventually lock if not descaled. The message window will first display: "DESCALE AFTER COFFEES: 100". This message will appear until the appliance is descaled or locks. When the count is down to zero, the appliance will lock and the message window displays: The appliance can only be used again once descaling has been performed. Let the machine cool before descaling. Remove the sleeve of the steam nozzle to avoid damage from the descaling agent. Only use the enclosed descaling tablets for descaling. The descaling tablets are specially designed for descaling this coffee system. Other agents may damage the machine and affect the taste of the coffee and hot water. The descaling tablets can be purchased from Miele. To prevent damage to the exterior of the machine wipe up any descaling solution spills immediately! Add 2 liters of water to the water tank. Dissolve two of the enclosed descaling tablets in the water. ^ Close the water tank and insert into position. ^ Close the door. The descaling will take place in the automatic descaling program. Automatic descaling ^ Turn the program selector counterclockwise to the "Program mode" position.Press e, to select "Descaling" with the asterisk. Press ENTER.

Your small tablets are brew unit cleaning tablets. they go in to the flap door under the ground coffee storage container in the top left of the machine. One cleaning tablet at a time when it tells to to start cleaning. Two descaling tablets at a time during descaling.
I have a cva4075 so this may not be exactly the same, but on the 4075 you open the front of the machine and pull out the left hand plastic container on the top. Underneath on the right hand side you will see a small flap. On the bottom side of the flap is a red triangle sign. That flap is the top of the funnel for the ground coffee. You drop the cleaning tablet into this funnel.
For the first you can change language via menues on the machine. second the machine must be descaled. There is possibility to by descaling tablets. Must be the one to the machine. Usermanual is available at miele.com
The big tablets are for descaling, and go in the water jug, the small ones for cleaning the brew unit, and pop in the top.
The boxes that they come in should tell you what they are - in many languages!
