Do you hear the motor spinning when you pull the lever?

open the cap clean the top of the bottle, then blow as hard as you can through it, does water come out, could just be blocked.

try and blow the hose out.... like dellboy said, if that seems clear...it could possibly be the water squirty pump is stuffed, or a loose wire somewhere along the line...

Wouldnt it be easiest to just pull the lever and listen...if there is a sound, blockage, if not...motor or wiring...pretty simple really...

Could even be the washer jets themselves, might be blocked.

Just use a needle and poke it into each washer jet hole / nozzle to see if that frees up any blockage there.
