The cheapest way is using homemade vinegar and lemon solution. If the deposit is big use a commercial cleaner. See the links below:

SOURCE: how do I clean off calcium deposit from dishwasher

I suggest you descale your machine with a cleaner such as C.L.R. Any cleaner with Phosphoric Acid will do a good job. The best way to clean your dishwasher is to pour a litre of this cleaner into your machine, and run a complete cycle. (without dishes in the machine) You may need to repeat this process every month depending on the hardness of your water.

Try getting some calcium, lime and rust remover. Follow the instructions on the bottle and run the dishwasher empty using only the CLR. Check your incoming water lines for calcium or lime build up.

Try cleaning your dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. this will clean out the build up. There is one that i recommend and it is called Dishwasher Magic.

You can prevent this from occurring in the future by, installing a Water softener in you home. this will heel the build up.

its a lime buildup.go to an industrial cleaning supply wharehouse (maybe home depot-lowes),and get can go to a supermarket and buy c.l.r. (calcium lime remover) but if its real bad you need a stronger delime.simply put the delime in the unit and run it through a may have to do this more then once to get rid of the scale.then once a month use a cup full of delime depending on the hardness of the water.
