Is the motor running when you activate the switch?

Buy a replacement pump $10-15 auto parts store.

If you hear the motor running you won't need a new one. Odds are if you're putting tap/ hose water in the washer reservoir tank the spray holes are clogged with calcium deposit due to the lack of the filtering of the tap/ hose water. Get a small sewing needle or safety pin to poke the spray holes clean of the build up.

If you hear the pump motor, and it is not fixed by clearing spray holes with pin, the clog is in the rubber hose. find the Y connector under the hood insulation, and blast compressed air both towards the nozzles and towards the reservoir. Hold it tight and rejoice when you hear low- growl bubbling and overflow of the fluid from the reservoir.
