Q: Windshield washer fluid not spraying

asked by on

My wife's BMW X3 is not spraying windshield washer fluid. I checked the reservoir and it is full. I tried to check for for kinks in the line and did not find any. I inspected all that I could see, with nothing looking abnormal. Also, the motor is working, as it makes the sound like it wants to spray but nothing comes out. Any suggestions on what may be the cause.

My car has 18000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
