    Before you start replacing the hoses get a strong needle and make sure the holes in the spray nozzles are not plugged. You do not say whether or not you hear the washer pump motor running?

Windshield washer fluid quit working on my 2011 Freightliner Cascadia


There's a few things you might want to check. First, check to make sure the washer fluid reservoir is completely (assuming you hadn't already done that). After you are certain the reservoir is full, look for any possible leaks...either the reservoir or the hoses going from the tank to the windshield. If the tank and hoses are intact, turn on your windshield wipers...then try running the pump. If no washer fluid comes out, and for this you might need another person to assist you, try running the pump again...listening to make sure the pump is in fact running. If the pump does run but still no fluid comes out, inspect all of the hoses as well as all of the outlets where the fluid sprays the windshield...it is possible that the outlets may be plugged. Some common reasons for the outlets to be plugged...debris, dirt/mud, and/or wax (has anyone recently waxed your Freightliner?). Just to be sure, using a small needle or even a wire, ensure each outlet is cleared and not obstructed with anything. After that, try running the pump again. If no luck, try removing the hoses going from the tank to the windshield. Once removed, using something like a wire coat hanger, clear each hose for any possible obstruction. Reattach hoses and try running pump again. If still no luck, I would guess the problem might be located with the washer pump itself. Before opting to replace the pump, if you believe that is the problem and the pump just doesn't operate, check all fuses and inspect any/all wiring connections.

Good luck

Replaced washer fluid pump and verified power to the pump but it wont work?


first thing i would do is remove the rubber hose from the pump to the wipers. if fluid is coming out then you lines are plugged or kinked also in the past i have had to take a pin and poke the holes at the wiper end. also check inside of the washer fluid tank and see if the hose is clogged and not pulling fluid

Only one winshied wiper spray works


Check the rubber hoses to the sprayers. If they are on the hood they can come unplugged when you open it. Have a friend work the sprayers as you watch for leaks. An old toothbrush can be used to clean spray nozzles by scrubbing over the hole.

The windsheild washer fluid is not pumping and I cannot find the pump under the hood


The pump is usually on the bottom of the washer fluid container
try removing the small hose that goes to the sprayer on the wiper and press the washer button to see if the solution is coming through, if ity is the small holes in the sprayer are blocked, if so, use a fine needle to clear them or blow them out with compressed air.
hope this helps

One can get a repair kit that includes a new motor pump and wiring clips, or

Windshield wiper fluid does not squirt out


go to a service station with an air compressor and with the air turned down to about 20 lbs blow into the washer top small hole to force fluid thru the hoses,not a lot of pressure so you blow hoses off or rupture something

The windshield washer fluid isnt coming out for


Yes there are two pumps located in the wiper fluid reservoir. If your in a bind, you can switch the plugs and small hose that go to them because they are both the same. The upper pump operates the back, and the lower pump operates the front. The back won't work until it gets replaced, but it beats driving backwards.

Windshield wiper water


The washe pump is a known item that will fail, especially if the washer fluid froze one time. If the hoses are all clear, replace the washer pump motor.
