If you have washer fluid in the contaner under your hood, then have someone listen with the hood up to see if the motor on the pump runs. If it does not run you have a loose connection usually at the washer motor or a bad fuze to the water pump. Fuse is in the fuse cluster, usually under the dash.
not to be a smart @ss but is there fluid in the tank? Hose might be plugged to nozzle, remove hose from nozzle and see if anything comes out of the hose when you push button. if it does nozzle might be plugged. Use alittle Compressed air, to back feed through nozzle from outside to inside. Need more info: temps outside, kind of vehicle (year make and model) check fuses for washer fluid?
A few possiblities. Lets start with the cheapest first. Washer fluid, could be low, I'd check it first. When you press the spray button you should be able to hear the pump turn on (usually ON the washer reservoir). If it turns on you probably have a leak or blocked line. If you don't hear it cut on I'd check your fuses and then check to see if it's getting power to the plug with a multi-meter or test light. If it's getting power and not cutting on then it's probably the washer pump. Hope this helps.
I had this problem last month. I was pushing the fluid button and was not hearing the motor. There could be two problems in this case. Either the unit in the steering wheel is malfunctioning, or there may have been non winter washer fluid in the pump and it froze and broke. In my case it was both, the button had to be jammed in to work, so the whole unit was replaced(turn signal and wiper control are together). The second problem was the the washer motor and is located on the drivers side, right under the washer fluid container. If you have parts laying around they are both very easy to fix.
Push the washer fluid button and hold it for 20 sec then look under the truck and seeif you see the washer fluid dripping on to the ground, if theres no sign of the washer fluid then you have a bad washer pump, which is located on the side of the washer bottle, if theres fluid dripping then you will need to follow the line, start at the washer nozzles, this is where it breaks the most, if the line is plastic you can use a peice of rubber hose that size and connect the broken line back together with the hose, hope this helps.
Had that happen to me before. Simply raise the hood and locate the plastic or rubber tube running to out put nozzle on hood. Disconnect and see if fluid shoots out. If it shoots out, simple take a needle of safety pin and clean out the nozzles located on the hood and should work. To clean the nozzle, you will have to lower the hood. If you want to you can do that before raising the hood. Oh by the way I assume you have verified that the reservoir is full.
may have a bad pump, when button is push do you see fluid driping on to the ground? if yes then there a broken line , just watch when it sparys and youll locate the leak, if you hear no noise when pushing button then id say the washer pump motor is no could and also make sure fluid is full and not frozen in bottle. good luck.
