The reason that the pumps fail is that there is a little shuttle valve in the pump which swaps from front or rear supply and it does stick, so it is best to use both washers often to stop it from gueing up, its a case of use it or lose it

Had the same problem and the same solution !!! shuttle valve shame .....on you....
