disconnect the line from the bonnet side, make sire you have water in the tank, give it a squirt, if nothing comes out the pump is stuffed, even if you can still hear it make noise but nothing coming out, buggered pump. the likelyhood that both sprayers are blocked is alot lower than a rooted pump.

as above. fill with water and disconnect hose from pump, give it a burl and watch for water coming out. if doesnt work pump stuffed. if working there, reconnect the hose and disconnect further on and repeat, disconnecting further on each time. eventually you will find where the problem is.
