After completing the cycle the bottom of one section of the cutlery basket was distorted/melted. I thought it was a fork loaded the wrong way up and the prongs had gone through the bottom and touched the heating element. I tried again having checked that there was no cutlery protruding below the bottom of the cutlery basket and got the same results. I assume something is causing the temperature to rise locally - perhaps not enough water in the machine? The crockery seems to be being cleaned properley. Any ideas what is causing this?

Check and clean both spray arms.
make sure nothing is restricting the movements of the arms. Have you selected the correct programme? Quick wash may not always dissolve tablets, you may need to put the tablet straight into cutlery basket at start of quick wash programme
check to see it the dishwasher has been pushed back ever so slightly. The water coming into dishwashers and exiting are on timers and if the hose is pinched this can affect it. Your dishwasher may appear to be in the same place but just pull it forward and try it again. What has you got to loose except big repair bill or a new machine.
That will only happen if the bottom basket is severely distorted or if the design of plates you're using means that they project below the bottom of the basket.
The first problem is fixed by straightening the basket or replacing it; the second one can only be fixed by experimenting with different ways of loading the plates to avoid them projecting down through the basket or by using different plates.
no not if it getting hot it still sounds like the motor isnt coming on put the spray arms in the same position turn it on then open the door are the arms still in the same position or haved the moved.those cleaners need hot moving water to melt the seal.
