First my windshield washer fluid was not being pumped out. The fluid is topped up. And the fluid pumping noise is absent.
Now my wiper blades stopped moving.
Is there one piece that could be responsible for this problem? How much would such a repair cost? I think I need my wipers working soon.

I would see of the front pump is good. You will have separate pumps for the front and rear. Could be the switch, wires, or pump itself. Each will need to be tested to determine the problem. Easiest place to start would be with a test light at the pump. If you get power to the connector at the pump when the button is operated then it is a good sign the pump is the issue.
I would start by checking fuses. If you've checked already, then the windshield washer pump has probably gone bad. The wiper motor and washer pump should be separate units. Typically the washer pump is located in the base of the washer fluid reservoir.
Either the pump is bad, or there is blockage in one of the supply lines to the sprayer. Have someone activate the washer switch while you listen under the hood to see if the pump makes a noise. If it does, unhook one of the lines at the firewall and below the sprayer to see if fluid is flowing out. If it is, you need to unplug the sprayers. If the pump makes noise but no fluid gets to the line, look for a blockage between the pump and the end of the line. If the pump makes no noise, check the fuse block for a bad fuse, otherwise assume the pump is bad.
Yes there are two pumps located in the wiper fluid reservoir. If your in a bind, you can switch the plugs and small hose that go to them because they are both the same. The upper pump operates the back, and the lower pump operates the front. The back won't work until it gets replaced, but it beats driving backwards.
not likely that fuse blew but check fuse box for wiper fuse and see if blown, when u fill fluid, turn ignition on but not running hit squirter and listen for pump noise if noise is present then hit repeatedly and look if there is any leakage dripping and trace leak, if no noise check resivor for debrie floating (posisible blockage) last thing is check for power at pump with wire probs
