The tank on your dishwasher is plastic so the rust you see is from your water. There are products that will take out the rust and I will give a link at the end but you can also get citric acid crystals from a druggist or pharmacy. Tell them what it is for and they will sell you some. The commercial product is called Affresh. You can get it at most Home Depot or Lowes. Here is a link.
