Wiper/Washer not working

I have a 1989 Ford Ranger 4X4 4.0 Engine with only 50,440 miles on it.
About a month ago my wipers stopped working. I took the fuse out to check it and it was OK after putting the fuse in the wipers started working again.
Last week the wipers and washers stopped working again.
The fuse was OK but I replaced it anyway.
The multi function switch checks out OK with an Ohmmeter. Both left and right turn signals and the high beam work but not the washer or wiper.
The washer pump works when I jump it from the battery.
With the ignition on and the wipers on I have power to the wiper motor so I assumed I had a bad wiper motor so I changed the wiper motor but no joy still no washer or wipers.
As far as I can tell the relays are OK.
All the wiring is in good shape.
I would appreciate any suggestions as what else could be causing the problem.
Thanks Jessie
