The windshield washer motor is most likely the issue here. You will need a volt meter and a wiring diagram. A few tests will need to be done.

Here is a wiring diagram of the motor. Start with checking all fuses in the diagram.

Here is the link to the wiper switch. This could also be a switch issue, but more commonly the motor.
