Wiper washer not working

Hello, I hope someone can help me solve my wiper washer problem.

When I pull the stalk back the wipers work and you can here the motor making a noise but there is no water coming out of the jets. It's been like this since I bought it in the summer. And I really need to get it sorted, with the bad weather here. The water tank is full. And I was hoping someone has a clue to how I will fix this please. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Re: Wiper washer not working

There is a thread on this somewhere. Do a search.
IIRC a sticky valve in the pump. Is it front, back or both not working? FYI front or back is selected by reversing the motor power supply, the valve/s do the rest. As previously stated cleaning & blowing is the best start. Followed by a good flushing & cleaning with Hot water & sodium Metabisulphate (sterilising solution) to prevent algae build up.
