I know that fear of knives is aichmophobia, but fear of them in the dishwasher is very specific. Though they have a lot of names for phobias, I don't think they have a name for that. Is it a fear of putting knives in the diswasher, or having them already be there? I think if you're looking for a name and details about it, there's a good chance they have something on it in the book DSM-IV, it's quite detailed and reputable. I hope this helps

The rust spots might be caused by rusting parts inside the dishwasher, such as under the 'wand' piece that rotates at the bottom of the dishwasher.

The part(s) will likely need replaced for the rust spots to stop on your knives.

The rule of thumb is to NEVER wash a good knife in the dishwasher. Heat and steam will ruin wood handles and excessive movement will cause nicks on blade. Always knives by hand, use a mild detergent and thoroughly dry with a towel. However, if you want to use the dishwater, place knives in upper shelf only (to lesen excessive movement and damage to blades), Do not use a heated cycle becasue heat will crack and/warp wooden handles.
