Don't risk rodding the pipes with a wire as you run the risk of damaging a non-teturn valve usually hidden somehwere in the bowels of the car.

It's most likely the inside of the washer pump has become blocked with gunge - quite a common problem.

You could try a few hot water flushes - failing that you need to remove the pump for cleaning or replacement.
