Overheated washer pump?

Driving home I was purposely running the washer tank dry as it had gone all congealed - so held the stalk continuously for a few minutes, now, it's stopped working all together.

Is there some sort of shut off on it if you overheat it & it'll start working again After a period of time or something?
Or have I fucked the pump?
Please help!

Can you still hear the pump working?
If so, it is probably just blocked. If you cant hear it working - probably buggered!

It will only let you hold it on for so long before the safety cuts in. I had this last week when I was emptying it for the same reason. I just syphoned it out in the end and stuck the old stuff in the works van. Don't worry.

Quite normal. It will only run for a certain time and then shut off so it doesn't cause damage.

How do you think i knew it was congealed in the first place

Having changed the washer pump for a tenner at the weekend on the girlfriends 123d i'm not afraid to get my hands dirty.
