Washer fluid wont spray

New Washer pump.

Blew out the washer lines, they're clear.

Windshield wipers turn both on normal settings and on the 'wash off' setting that involves the washer fluid.


Kinda curious what's wrong, and why the fluid won't spray. I'm thinking its electrical, and the motor isn't turning on, since everything else is clear. Where/how should I go about fixing this?

double check all hoses for air leaks. Put a small hose on the pump, will it shoot out it? Take it 1 step at a time until you find either a bad pump, air leak or water leak.

Its either a bad wire connection or broken wire or the switch in the stem is messed up if you don't have power at the pump....
