You will need a test light/probe to check wether you have power to the windscreen washer bottle motor.If you have power at the motor and it doesnt pump you will need to replace it.Because the wipers are still working its unlikely to be a power supply issue.Can you hear the motor trying to pump when you activate it?If you can hear motor humming then you may have blocked nozzles.Usualy a small sewing needle poked down the squirter nozzles will clear them.Also make sure your water squirter hoses are not blocked and havnt fallen off.

SOURCE: Wind screen wipers and central
you may have two problems or they are both related, the first step would be to check all your fuses, then if fuses are good then test for power at motor to see if the motor is bad or the switch, you will need a test light to do this, turn power on to wipers and then test for power at motor.

This can be a problem with the multifunction stick switch by the column or the motor has a bad ground wire or internal contact.
What happens inside the wiper motor is that a contact point shifts the revolving mechanism into the Park or Rest position. If the contact point fails to work and derail the revolving mechanism, it will never stop.
Sometimes a bad ground wire or the casing will corrode and the contact wire inside the motor will not work.
The stalk switch is another problem. There is just too much going on inside this thing to be dependable. It in effect, it can fail to register your turning off the wiper motor. So it stays on even though it is turned off.
Both of these parts connect to each other. You can get wiring diagrams at Autozone.com by registering your car for free. If you can find the wires on the motor connector, you should be able to tell whether the stalk switch is shutting off by using a voltmeter.
If you can tell the stalk is good, then the only thing left is the wiper motor.
With the wiring diagrams and also fusebox layouts you get from Autozone, you can find the correct fuse to pull on the wiper motor circuit.
This is a temporary solution and sometimes the radio or other things like a domelight are attached to the same fuse.
I hope my solution is helpful.
