is it cold where you are? if so could be frozen!
other thing to try get a needle or pin and go to the sprayers try to clean them with the pin as they sometimes block up.

If no joy then get back to me and I will give you some alternatives.

Windshield washer not working

  1. check your windshield washer fluid level.
  2. make sure you can hear the fluid pump operating when you operate the switch.
  3. If you can hear the pump working and you have fluid in the reservoir but still no spray,
  4. check the washer fluid lines don't have holes and aren't clogged or pinched. check the sprayer nozzles make sure they are not clogged with debris.
  5. if your washer still doesn't work your fluid pump is probably the problem.

My front washer fluid stopped working on my 2001 subaru impreza outback, I can't hear the motor when I activate it, what's the problem?

Have you check fluid levels? Sounds like there may be a clog with in the lines themselves. Check the lines after the motor. Good luck.

Washer fluid will not come out

Get a helper to turn on the washer while you listen closly in the area of the fluid tank. You should hear the pump turn on. If you do not hear the pump. Check for loose wiring. Check for a bad fuse. If all that is ok, you have a bad washer fluid pump motor. If you hear the pump motor running, check for some crud in the tank that may have stopped up the small screen in the bottom. Check the small hoses that connect the pump to the sprayers on the hood.

Windshield washer sprayer motor is not working. is there a fuse or do I have to replace the motor?

Activate the washer fluid switch and listen to see if you can hear the pump making noise. If you can, the try disconnecting the washer fluid hoses and blowing through them to see if they are clogged. If they dont here are some steps to diagnose a faulty pump.

Fist find the washer pump, should be located at the bottom of the fluid bottle.
Second disconnect the harness from the pump, and hook a test light to both terminals.
Third have someone operate the switch for the pump and look to see if the light comes on.
If the light does come on then the pump is most likely burnt out. Replace the pump and you should be good to go.
If you don't have power trace the ground wire and make sure it is connected, then check your fuses and make sure none are blown.

And please rate this solution, thank you

My 2003 malibu-the windshield wipers work but I,m not getting any washer fluid-usually you can hear the motor when you push the button to get washer fluid-I,m not hearing anything.Also where is the washer...

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.

The window washer fluid does not come out when pressed. where do i start to check?

check the washer fluid canister to see if you can hear the pump. If so, then check screen in tank and hoses and spray nozzles for clogs. If you cannot hear pump when you press the button, check the fuse and the wiring to the canister.

2000 sonata windshield washer fulid not comming out

Turn your car to acesories and turn washer on, have someone listen for the washer motor running, if they dont hear it could be a bad motor or fuse. If they do hear it then remove hose from washer nozzles and turn on washer, see if there is any fluid coming out, if there is then your nozzles may be stopped up, if not hose is stopped up. Try blowing hose back towards tank to open it up
