The resistance of the ice was greater than the strength of your wiper linkage or AKA wiper transmission. IT is probably broke, but may just be disconnected.

First listen to see if the pump located in the windshield washer reservoir is actually working. If it is not running, check the fuse and wiring. If there is power to the pump and it will not work the pump is defective and needs replacing. If the pump is working, then check to make sure the hoses running to the windshield spay nozzles are connected and not broken. If they are check the nozzle orifice to make sure no wax has accumulated. Clean out the orifice with a small straight pin or needle.
