My Dishwasher KitchenAid not spraying water

My dishwasher upper and middle sprayers stopped working and noticed that the water is filling well into the dishwasher but not strong enough to reach the upper levels of it, the dishes still not clean when the cycle is completed. Any ideas on what caused this.
the water pressure from the main is strong as ever.

Thank you in advance.

Welcome Raji:
The spray pressure in the dishwasher is not dependent on the municipal water pressure but, rather on a pump inside.
It sounds more like an obstruction in the circulating system, leaking pump system, or just a worn out pump.

Thank you Glenn for the welcoming massage. I do not see any leaking from the machine at all. Is the pump you reference has anything to do with the water inlet valve. could that be the cause the issue?

Thanks again.
