While someone is pulling the stalk, use a meter or test light to check for voltage at the washer pump, located on the bottom of the washer fluid reservoir. if there is voltage, the pump is bad. if no voltage, it may be a fuse, bad switch or a break in the wiring.

First you need to check the fuse, check if the washer pump is engaging, do it by putting the ignition of (do not start the engine) and get someone to hear near the washer bottle ( where you put the fluid) for any sound of a spinner coming on when you use the stalk to put on the screen wash, if there is no sound, locate the pipe coming to the nozzle and see if the fluid comes when you use the stalk, if nothing than your washer pump is gone.
