No water coming out of windscreen washers

Hi there just got a 1998 1.3 ford fiesta encore. It has water in the washer tank but none will come out of the front or rear washers. I can hear the motor doing its job but no water. What is the best way to test if its the motor or if its all blocked up.
Thanks

Pull the hose off and see if it pumps. You may need to lift the hose above the water level so it doesn't (gravity feed)

Also pull the pump out and make sure the filter's not blocked up with additive residue.
