Re: washer fluid not working on drivers side
Dirt may have gotten into your washer fluid system and clogged the hose going to your drivers side tubing or nozzle, my suggestion is to take all the drivers side hoses out and force air or water the reverse direction to clear any possible clogs. the hardest part of this job should be finding the tubing because its probably hidden.

nozzle stopped up with wax, or tubing is stopped up, pump motor may be running, but pump isn't. Check for pressure at the pumps. Tubing sometimes comes off or has cracks that let washer fluid escape. Its sounds like a search till you find it type thing. Can't be too much, either a blown fuse, faulty pump/motor, or faulty tubing/clogged nozzle
Are there two brake fluid reservoirs? And are both full? This would be a split-diagonal brake system-front driver and rear passenger are one brake system. Front passenger and rear driver are the other system. You have the one system working-the front passenger and rear driver side works. You will have to keep bleeding the rear passenger side and the front driver side-always start farthest from the master cylinder, but if that wheel just won't bleed air out, make sure the driver front is working and bleeds good. If all else fails, there are pressure bleeder kits available, I don't know the cost, but they work great. They are also a one man bleeding job, as I understand.
The pump pushes fluid through a single hose that splits into two to deliver washer fluid to the passenger and drivers side washer nozzles.
The passenger nozzle is plugged. Try removing it and blowing impressed air through it.
follow the rubber tubing from the passenger side, from where the fluid exits back towards the resivor and u will find a tee fitting where the tubing splits from pasenger to driver side. take it apart and blow compressed air thru it.
If you are using the "anti-freeze" type washer fluid, freezing should not be an issue anyway. You say that heating does not help, my guess is that your problem is a blockage rather than a freezing issue. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
Follow the tube to the wiper to see if it "Tee's" into the main washer fluid line. Unhook the driver's side one and try to blow through it (Don't inhale, Bill!). If it feels stopped up, you can try compressed air.
Lastly, make sure that the "T" is not blocked too. You can hit the squirter with the driver's side unhooked to see if anything comes out. If it does, it is blocked between the "T" and the exit port. Sometimes the exit ports get wax in them. You can use a paperclip or needle to clean it out.
remove the hose from the washer nozzle and see if a good stream of liquid comes out, if it does the nozzle is plugged, if it doesn't then the hose is kinked somewhere, look for where it goes to nozzle.
