I don't know. I was told in a workshop by the teacher that it needed professionally cleaned. There are many, many spots.

If the spots are dust, then you could blow them off with a Rocket Blower, taking care not to bump against the mirror or the sensor when doing so.

If, however, you're dealing with something sticky like pollen or if you sneezed into your camera then your best course of action is to go to a good, reputable camera shop and ask if they offer a professional sensor cleaning service.
You can clean the sensor yourself, with the correct equipment, but I would suggest having it done professionally.

Here's a thread about sensor cleaning.
Sensor cleaning - what do you use? - PentaxForums.com

Do not use a pressure washer and certainly don't wash it in the sink!
