    it could be a case that the terminals on the switches have got corroded. this happened to mine as my rear washer had been leaking slightly and running over them, if the jet from the washers follows the wiper round the window rather than just spraying in one place then the wee brass pipe up to the nozzle is likely to be snapped and leaking. i repaired the washer motor and cleaned the terminals on the switches that had gone green and it all works now

    hope that helps
