Default Windsheild Washer not working

The windshield washer fluid is not working. I can hear the motor running and the resviour is full. I have raised the hood and removed the line where at the connection before it goes into the hood to see if fluid comes out and it only trickles out. Does this mean the motor is bad? Or What do I need to do? Thanks

If you've mixed types of fluid (specifically blue and then a deicing formula) you probably have a gummed up pump inlet. Remove the pump motor and have a look - chances are, you can clean it out. If I'm changing types of fluid, I always empty out the old before adding the new.

Man the exact same thing happened to me actually... I thought the lines split somewhere but couldn't find any leaks. Yesterday I ripped the reservoir out to check the pump and it seemed fine. Right under the pump inlet there's a white plastic fitting that's actually an inlet filter. It was completely clogged up with crap. I cleaned it and problem solved in under 20 minutes.

I'd check that first
