Kenmore elite dishwasher

My dishwasher has started making a humming/buzzing noise that is getting progressively louder with each use. I have very limited skills but would like to start tackling some of these issues myself.

First, you need to specify a make and model number, how long you have had it and how often it is used. Then, does the noise occur when filling the machine, while it is running, or while it is emptying the water. Does it occur on all the wash and rinses, or just on one particular portion of its operation. The more detailed information you provide, the more likely someone will be able to help you.

Buzzing is often from the solenoid valves for the drain and the fill. By listening when it happens, you can narrow down the location.

It is a Kemnore Elite ultra wash quiet guard 4. The noise starts as soon as machine is started. Gets progressively louder and lasts throughout all cycles. Model number 665.17052400 and is about 7 years old.

That doesn't make sense. The motor shuts off briefly at the end of each cycle before the water starts pumping out. The motor doesn't even start while the unit is filling in each cycle until the water gets up to a minimum level. Please try to be more specific.
