Mine was doing this also upon startup. I would just turn the wipers on one click and it would squirt water but when I turned them back off it would stop the wipers. Had to do this everytime I started it for like 3 weeks. My fix was trading it in lol.
New to the site but I was looking for the solution to this same problem and found out nothing so with the process of elimination I found mine. I thought switch too due to the double issue wipers and washer not going off. I replaced that first $200 and dealership will not take back. (sucks) I then replaced the wiper motor and bam wipers now work when i want them to and my washer tank is staying full. So for the future i hope this helps any of you with this annoying problem.
Sorry I'm not around as much as I used to be or I could have helped much sooner. We see a lot of water intrusion into wiper motors that make them behave that way. I have a Vette in my stall right now where the cowl drain tubes got clogged with leaves and filled the cowl with water and submerged the wiper motor. Usually a tell tale is when you disconnect the wiper motor connector from the motor, it will show corrosion.
It ended up being the wiper module. Dealership didn't want to fix it. I told them it would be a shame to come after them because I got into a wreck .. After that they told me to enjoy my new module and have a nice day.. Cheap pricks.
