Make sure the container is full.
Stand very near the container and have someone attempt to use the washer spray and listen for the sound of the pump to make sure it's working.
If not working, either blown fuse or faulty washer pump.
If it is making noise, you can look on the underside of the hood near the windshield for the washer hoses where they go into the hood.
Carefully pull a hose off and try the sprayer again.
If you get water pumping out, the clog is at the hood nozzles. That can usually be cleared out with a thin sewing needle or a single piece of wire cut off a large wire brush.
If no water came out of the hose you removed, you will need to remove the washer fluid reservoir (large bottle, usually hidden pretty deep into the fender/bumper and drain it, then check for clogs at the washer pump screen.
The sprayer itself may be attached to the underside of the wiper arm and is removable. Carefully remove the sprayer, disconnect the hose, and turn on the wiper and the washer. It liquid comes out of the hose, the sprayer is clogged. If no liquid comes out, the hose could be clogged, so replace the hose. You need to find the other end at the black plastic manifold that divides the washer flow into the two sprayers. Disconnect the passenger side and blow into in, just in case to unclog it, then try again. If the washer is working for the driver side, that manifold is unclogged.
Soaking the sprayer overnight in vinegar could unclog it., but the sprayer is cheap to buy new.
Have you tried taking a clothing pin and clearing the spray tip? I've had my WWF nozzles clog on me before, I noticed it when only one side was spraying. I just took a sewing needle and unclogged it, worked fine after that.
First try to clean out the squirter nozzles.Take a very small wire, sometimes a staple works great, and stick it into the nozzle to clear any debris.Then try to spray it again.If this didn't solve the problem and the debris is cleared, then you either have a weak or blocked pump, which is located on the washer reservoir itself.Hope I could help!!! Rate me accordingly!! Thanks!
Check the hoses running to the front windshield washer nozzles. If the hoses are good check the pump to see if it is working correctly. Remove one of the hoses from the spray nozzle and see if the pump is working. If it is then the spay nozzles are stopped up. Use a needle to clean them out. They can easily get plugged with wax. If the pump is not working then either the fuse is blown or the pump is defective.
follow the windshield spray nasal water lie to the pump making sure the line is not broken, next do you hear the pump running when you spay the fluid, if not that the pump is faulty, if you do hear the pump running, more likely the windshield spray nasal is clog with debris; to unclog it try to use a clothes needle, poke around in it to see if you can clear the blockage, if not, replace will be the best idea, fairly cheap and easy to replace. those windshield tank and the pump does not have good filter on them and they tend to get clog up in the pump or the spray nasal.
If you have used ANYTHING beside windshield solvent in you reservor, you may have created WAXING from soap in the bottom of washer tank, which clogs pump,lines, and nozzel....take the tank out and wash it..disconnect washer hoses at nozzel and clear with compressed air along with the nozzel...if you use solvent only you may have a worn washer pump or restriction...check those and good luck.....
check that the jet is not clogged.take a very thin piece of wire,like from a twist tie and clean the hole. maybe the hose is pinched or disconnected.if you spray the rear,you should hear the pump working.i have seen hoses come off and if you spray for 20 seconds,it may leak from the car
