top sprayer in dishwasher won't turn


I have a dishwasher that used to work fine ( 2 years old ), now the top sprayer doesn't work. Water is going through it and I took it off to see if it was plugged ( look fine ).
What I am thinking is that the water pressure might be too low. How can I find out, and boost the pressure if needed?

you can't boost the pressure.. Check the water line that feeds the sprayer for obstruction

you can not boost water pressure in a dishwasher. First I need to know what kind it is and I can ask my husband he is an appliance tech for 20 years.
