I just had this problem and took the car back as I had just bought it. They told me there was a build up of sludge in the washer bottle that had blocked the pipes. They cleaned the pipes and the washer bottle out and it's working like new now!!

SOURCE: Windshield washers not working
I wouldn't worry about tracing the hose just yet, most likely it's a bad pump. Find the wire(s) going to the pump, usually on the bottom of the reservoir and connect a test light to a good ground. Then have someone try to 'squirt' the washer fluid while you touch the test light 'probe' to the pump's wire connector. If it lights but no fluid squirts, it's bad. They are cheap and usually very easy to replace. If it doesn't light there's a brake in the circuit somewhere. (bad fuse, bad connector, etc.) Good luck.

You could have debirs in the pump or in the line. some units have screens that can get clogged up. Do make sure fuse is in place and tight. There may also be a relay that could be loose or faulty. You can check with an ohmmeter.
