Why not just hook a voltmeter to the contacts, and check for current while
someone turns on the washers?

I fixed mine by taking out the pump (it's nestled beside the washer fluid
reservoir), shaking it around and blowing in it, and putting it back in.

Not sure if it was bad contacts or something stuck inside.  It's worked
fine for over a year now.
