It could be a fuse problem. The fuse box is located on the left side of the dash. It can be found with the door open and looking at the end of the dash. There is a small cover that when removed has a chart of what all the fuses go too. If the fuses proves to be good, the motor can be found under the hood (sort of).
To get to the wiper motor you will need to remove the wiper arms and then you will need to remove the black vent cover to get at it. It is only held in by five black panel clips. Once you have removed the clips and removed the wiper arms and the washer lines, lift up the cover and slide it out. Note: it comes out much easier than it goes back in. With the cover off, the wiper motor will be visible on the drives side of the car. Remove three screws (10 mm) and th entire assembly comes out. flip it over to see and depress the clip that holds the wiring on. You should be able to take it out and put it back in about 30 minutes. Try to do it on a warm day so that when you are reassembling it, you do not tear up the rubber seal around the windshield. I got the entire unit from my local junk yard for 30 bucks.
One more thing to consider as a possible problem is the wiper joystick in the car.
Hopefully it is only your fuse.

Make sure outlets are clean first. It could be the washer pump if it is for the price you might try replacing http://www.car-stuff.com/store/?N=9261&Nr=OR(AND(make:Chevrolet,model:Tahoe,year:2003),AND(universal:1))&Vi=9987+4294965151+1588&y=2003&mk=Chevrolet&md=Tahoe Please rate if this helps Thanx

It should be on its own circuit. Check manual for fuse location. When you hit the switch can you hear the washer motor turn on? If not check fuse and connection to motor. They are fairly cheap and usually easy to replace.

go to autoparts store and use their scanner to scan the computer and get the code. you may have to wait until you can catch it back on again. You can try resetting the computer by disconnecting battery for 30 minutes and see if that works first

can be faulty wiper motor or blown wiper control fuse.
you hear any kind of noise when you starter the wiper function. If yes then
fuse is ok, but issue is wiper motor.
