When you press the "wash" button (for either the front, or rear), can you hear the related washer pump motor run? There should be a noticeable sound from the motor, especially if the car is a quiet area, engine off, key at ON and hood up.
If yes, then there could be a blockage in the hose(s).
If no, then it could be the motors, but it also not uncommon for the connectors at the motors to become badly corroded, so much so that they don't make a good connection, in which case, cleaning the contacts will often resolve the problem.
Both the washer motors and their respective wipers work off the same fuse, so that fuse is okay if the wipers work.
The washer motors are at the bottom of the windshield washer reservoir.
