The washer pump is not fused by itself. The pump is on the bottom of the washer fluid reservoir. To access it you need to pull the reservoir out. Before you replace the pump, make sure you have 12 volts at the pump connector with the button pushed. If not, it may be the switch, but this would be rare.

You will have to loosen the inner fender well to access the pump. It is mounted directly on the reservior.
