Default 2012 Suburban washer fluid problem

Hi all,
I'm having a problem with my wiper washer fluid not spraying at all on just the passenger side. Nothing comes out at all not even drops but the driver side sprays fine. I guess it isn't the pump as the driver side works. I also tried cleaning out the nozzle with a needle but still nothing. Any help or insight is greatly appreciated.
Thank You

Disconnect the hose going to the passenger wiper and see if it sprays. if it does then the nozzle is clogged. If it doesn't check the hose all the way back tio the pump.

open the hood and check the line/connection at the washer nozzle for leaks. if no leaks, remove the tube from the nozzle...operate the washer...if it flows out unrestricted...replace the nozzle.

Trace the hose back to the reservoir/pump and check for kinks. My money is on a kinked hose on the arm of the wiper.
