Re: rust spots on dishwasher baskets
Clean as much of the rust off as possible, down to bare metal to prevent it from returning. Cover the exposed metal with white silicone caulk. The white will match the interior of the dishwasher fairly well and the silicone can stand up to the environment. When you apply the caulk, go past each side of the exposed metal by 1" and all the way around the wire to give the most protection possible.
