Have you checked the owners manual? Try half a cup of bleach poured in the bottom and run full cycle. Or run it with the breakfast drink "TANG" or powdered lemonade drink mix. About 1/4th cup should do it. Hope this helps.

My mother tried Tang, she was amazed. You fill the soap containers and run the dishwaher as usual it will remove the tomato stains.

Hi, I had this problem and tried everything mentioned without any success. I stumbled across a product from Cascade called Plastic Booster 2 in1 for removing red stains and it worked perfect. Our dishwasher looks like new. I filled both detergent holders with the Cascade Plastic Booster. This product also removes all the red stains from your plastic ware. A++++

I just load a full load of dishes with my normal dishwashing powder and pour about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of bleach in the center of the machine just before you close the door. Everything comes out white and bleached and you can believe the dishes are clean. Getting rid of tomato based stains shouldn't be a problem if you do this.
