Windshield Washer Won't Spray

I have a 1989 240 DL Volvo wagon. The washer fluid does not spray. I have changed the fuse, filled the washer fluid tank, and have tentatively poked the nozzles with a needle. Still nothing. Anyone with any ideas?

My wife ran the washer fluid tank dry on her 2008 Ford Escape and informed me a week or two later. I filled the tank and nothing but a few sprinkles would come out of the sprayers every 5 or 10 seconds. I could hear the motors so knew it wasn't the motors. I traced where the hose hooked up at the bottom of the tank and unplugged it. There is a small screen filter between the hose and tank that had coagulated washer fluid of some sort. Used a toothbrush to clean the screen and hooked it back up. Worked instantly. Good luck.
