Remover the washer bottle and check the washer pump. The rubber tube that exits through the wiper spindle often gets blocked and could have burnt out the pump or caused a fuse to blow.

Swap the motor from the rear wash bottle, somtimes the connectors can corrode, see if you got volts at the connector, stalks do fail but most likely the motor.
