Sounds like you may need to change the washer fluid pump. They do go bad. It's located inside the washer fluid reservoir, which is in the front of the passenger's side wheel well, behind the front bumper.
Park the vehicle in a dry area, try pressing the washer, open bonnet and have a look to see if there is any water on the ground or in engine bay, if there is then one of the hoses that go to the washer nozzles have broken or come off, simply replace, if there is no sign of water, get yourself a fine pin and clear the nozzle with it (where the water comes out from), if you can get behind the nozzle you can also blow it out with compressed air, usually this happens after polishing the vehicle.
Take off the pipe at the pump then use the washer switch and see if the water sprays out. To check if the pump is working you will need someone to use the switch while you hold your hand on the pump you should feel or hear the pump working. If the pump is going but no water spraying blow back through it and try again. If it dosent work then you will probably need a pump.
it's likely the tiny motor/pump located at the bottom of the tank that has failed. to confirm this have some turn on the washer fluid switch and test for voltage at the pump. there are several aftermarket pumps you can use as a replacement.
While you were filling the tank you may have disconnected the pump wires. If you can hear the pump activating when you use the switch then the pump may have gotten clogged , check for sediment in the tank.
For the person with the mustang - if its only coming out of one side then its a nozzle clogged or a pinched hose.
