Hello it's a Kdw60x13Yes it seems to heat up during the washI would say the problem is worse in the top basketCheersAndy

Ok if its heating up and it seems to be worse on the top baskets then its possibley something to do with the spray arms.
Pull the top basket out and remove the spray arm under there and give this a good clean out. Make sure all the holes are clear as if any are blocked this actually stops the arm from spinning and spraying the water around.
Also look at the back when you push the top basket back the lower spray arm pushes into a support tube that runs up the back. Its usually a plastic nut it pushes into with a rubber washer in there. Check that nut and make sure the washer is still in there and not worn.
Try them and see what you find as its usually something to do with the spray arm when you get faults like this.
