Do you have a plug at the left rear corner of the tub? It has two rows of 5 pin slots and is rounded one two corners and are square on the other two corners. From the top left round corner (that is pin #1). Pin #4 &#5 each have a wire in it. That is for the wiper cirrcuit. A wire in pin #7 would be for the washer circuit.

That is not from a 91 YJ wiring diagram but they probsblky did not change much from year to year. See if there is a small hose there also. That would be your window washer hose. If it is all there the wiring is also in the dash harness.

All you need to do is buy a wiper/washer switch and install it in the dashboard where it belongs in the space under the speedometer. The wiring and plug for the wiper/washer (and the fog lights and possibly the rear defroster) should already be in the dash harness. You just remove the little 'cutout' from the blank panel that can hold the fog light switch, rear defroster switch and the wiper/washer switch. You remove the little panel and cut it out from the back. Pop in the correct switch which was used in the YJ's of the time and the XJ's also, and wella! you have wipers.

Here is a picture of what a '95YJ HT plug looks like. Yours could be similar:
