The most likely culprit is going to be the drain pump but the best way to determine which one is making the noise is to start a cycle from the beginning. The first 30 seconds the dishwasher turns the drain pump on to evacuate any left over water in the sump. If the noise comes on during this portion you need to remove the drain pump and check for any debris hitting the impeller. If not then replace the drain pump. Other than that if the noise only occurs when spraying the water then check for debris or replace the circulation pump.
