Coffee stains are just one of those things that your dishwasher just isn't going to remove. I assure you they are sanitized and safe to use. That being said there are some things you can do to remove the coffee stains.
Use a damp cloth to scrub out the inside with baking soda. Soaking overnight with hot water and baking soda may also work.
Soaking in bleach or vinegar over night. It goes without saying but make sure you rinse your mugs well if you decide to do this.
Fill with boiling water and a tablespoon of dishwasher detergent soak overnight.
Scrub with a paste of corn starch and vinegar. Leave on for 30min - 1hour and rinse.
Interestingly enough denture tablets have also been known to remove coffee stains. Toss a few in there and soak overnight.
mcdevito75 here, Start with a new paper filter or claen the perminant one, you"ll need enough WHITE VINEGAT to fill the pot itself 3/4 full of this WHITE VINEGAR, NOW pour the pot of 3/4 full of WHITE VINEGAR into the resovoir, replace pot in the coffeee maker and cycle thru the vinegar 3 times, each time letting the mavhine cool a bit for easy handleing, on the 3 rd cycle stop 1/2 thru the brew cycle, let machine cool for 30 Minutes, then complete that cycle. Now repeat with fresh water to reove all the vinegar from the machine. Your coffee maker should now be good as new.
Add some automatic dishwasher detergent ( maybe 1/4 cup) and fill the rest of the pot up with very hot water. Swirl to combine. Let stand for a few hours. Use a bottle brush to scrub the pot. Or get some denture cleaner tablets and throw them into the pot with hot water. Let stand a few hours or overnight, then scrub with bottle brush. I've tried both methods on my coffee pot and both work great for me.
Run 2 cups distilled white vinegar and 2 cups water through the system - brew it like it was regular coffee. Then run plain water through the coffemaker to rinse the vinegar out and make sure the decalcification was successful. Repeat as needed. Don't forget to remove the charcoal water filters first.
Call Cuisinart and see if they consider it an in-warranty issue (it has a 3-year warranty). If it were just the liquid issue that would be one thing, but since it's not keeping the coffee hot, then you have a hidden crack somewhere. Mine has the sloshy liquid issue, but I just live with it since it still keeps the heat inside. Otherwise, it's been a great coffeemaker that has lasted for over 6 years. As far as the coffee spilling everywhere - I would switch to paper filters (don't use the paper in conjunction with the gold tone filter). The filter basket door latch may be worn - as many problems as you're having, this may be a warranty issue that Cuisinart can solve.
Finally, I got my coffee pot to run through without stopping several times. To fix it I had to run vinegar through eight times! Never before has it taken so many cycles to clean out a pot. It is still spluttering a bit so today I am going to get more vinegar or maybe even CLR and run it through a few more times.
I called Cusinart support and they told me to fill with 2 cups of white vinegar and the rest water, let set for three hours. Did that. Had to keep hitting the on button to get this solution through. Then used a solution of one cup of vinegar and water and this ran through the whole cycle. Ran three more with just water and now it works just fine. Brewed coffee this morning with no problem. Didn't think this would work but seems to have solved the problem. They do suggest you decalcify once a month using the vinegar solution...hope I remember to do this as it would be a lot easier than having to get hitting the on button. Good luck!
