Mieles do not have a drying element - this is a big energy saver. They save heat from washing and use that to dry the dishes. Sometimes they will not be quite bone dry at the end of the cycle, but most will be dry if you open the door for a little while to let air circulate.
If your vent (port on the front) is blocked then the machine will not be able to blow out the damp air, and you will have wet dishes as you describe. If you have leaking from that port, then check my answers on "the Miele problem" which I am pasting below.

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 an idiotic problem that Miele should have a permanent fix for. Grrrr.
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!!
I have a Miele WT2780 where the fan motor stops spinning. This will stop the dryer from working even though the element heats up. The failure of the fan will not blow the air across the heating element and thus into the drum. New motors fitted are around £400 min. I am never going to buy another Miele - mine failed after 6yrs.
Another problem is the thermostat can trip. This is a small button inside the machine (TURN OFF MAINS ELECTRIC AND UNPLUG FROM WALL then remove the lid) on the right hand side of the alloy centre channel at the top. It has two wires connected to the switch and in the centre there is a small black button. Press it firmly and it will heat up again. If this keeps tripping then the air duct could be blocked with fluff. This is my next task as mine now trips more frequently so will post back here with instructions. Update 12/10/16 - problem returned so dismantled top of air duct having removed the lid - tight torx screws - inside chamber was full of fluff. Removed and cleaned - all good now!.
Have you tried moving the clothes around in the drum to balance the drum BEFORE you was them? If that works, you have solved the problem! Most people forget that when cloth gets wet it gets heavy so leaving the clothes unevenly placed in the drum dry will make a real problem when they get wet!
There's all sorts of ways that washer dryers can get you.
Reading between the lines, I think you've got a situation where the machine is tumbling the clothes, is getting them warm (though not terrifyingly, scaldingly hot) and is eventually succeeding in getting them dry (rather than making them sopping wet). If those things are not all true, then read no further, but post again with more details of the symptoms.
This set of symptoms can be caused by the breather being blocked.
Somewhere, there will be a wide-bore (perhaps 1" / 25mm) tube that comes up from near the bottom of the tub (on my machine at home, it is attached to the bottom of the condenser, which itself is connected to the back of the tub at the bottom) and which runs up to somewhere near the top of the cabinet where it is open to the air. It is likely to have some sort of U bend at the bottom.
Try removing this tube and seeing if there's a plug of wet lint in the bottom.
