Mazda Tribute Washer Motor

Anyone know where the front washer motor is located? I'm thinking behind the wheel well.
When I locate the washer, how do I go about testing it?
It currently isn't working. The whiper works so I know it's not the fuse as the washer motor and whiper run through the same fuse.

    I think the washer pump is inside the washer reservoir of your Tribute but I think you've already "tested" it since you can't hear it.

    FYI: Moter(s), there are two, one for the front and one for the rear, are attached the the resevour as you say and they are behind the inner wheel well, which was a real PITA to to take off, About 15 or 20 screws, a few bolts and a lot of pulling and tugging.
    Not a damn thing wrong with the motor. Rubber hose fell off. A lot of work for an easy fix.

    Thanks for the followup. It's amazing how complicated they can make simple things!
