You will have to test to see if you are getting power to motor . Might be wiper stalk faulty .

But if the rear wipers and front washers are working from the same stalk then it must be another fault somewhere. Any ideas ?

If , for instance ,there is a broken wire on switch for front wiper , that would cause it . Checked if you are getting power to motor as suggested ?
