    Since the wipers and the washer both use the same fuse; if the wipers still work, this is not a fuse problem. The usual cause of the washer not working is that the spray nozzles near the windshield become clogged. They can be cleared by inserting a small pin into the end. The washer motor sometimes fails. Have someone stand near the washer pump under the hood while you turn on the washer switch. If they hear the pump motor running; the nozzles are probably clogged. If the pump motor does not run; it probably has failed, or the contacts in the wiring harness plug to the pump have become corroded. If there is a filter screen in the pickup line in the washer fluid container; it sometimes can plug up.
