It sounds as if the windshield washer pump, located at the base of the windshield washer fluid reservoir, has lost it's seal. When this occurs, washer fluid seeps into the pump and shorts it out. I advise that you remove the pump to confirm this before replacing the fuse. A replacement wind washer pump and fuse can be found at your dealer, local auto parts store or the internet (Rockauto.com has always been a great source for quality parts at a very competitive price and I use them all the time). Hope this helps.
Check for voltage where the connector plugs into the pump. If you have power there when you press the "wash" button, the pump is probably bad. If you DO have power then check your wiring for breaks. Also, is there anything else that doesn't work in your car? (i.e. dome lights, glove box light...etc.) AND....recheck the fuse to make sure it is in snug and hasn't blown again.
Why are you looking for the fuse? Are your washers not working? Did you check to see if you had power at the washer pump motor? If there is power present, there is no need to find the fuse. Washer pump motor failures are common. It is also possible that the fluid in your reservoir could be frozen. (I don't know where you live, but for the most of U.S. it is winter and COLD!) Replacing a blown fuse will not fix your car until you find out why the fuse blew in the first place. Simply replacing the fuse will only serve to make you spend money on another fuse.
The windshield washer pump is part of the windshield wash reservior.
There is an electrical connector located on the bottom of the reservior.
That is the pump .
If the pump is not in the reservior. I would just trace the washer fluid lines from the sprayer on the vehicle back to the pump. The lines just might lead back to the reservior for the windshield wash solution. Then you will have confirmed the pump is in the reservior.
You may have to get a new reservior. The pump might not be seperate item, I am not 100% sure on that.
I also would double check the fuses and any relays related to the washer pump.
Finally, I would check the washer switch if you replace the pump and still is not working .
