Check to see if they need to tightened up. If there tight then gunna have to just get a new motor. This happen to mine as well , the drivers side wiper stop working but passenger still wiped so I just went and got one from junkyard and replaced it. Its not a difficult job. If I remember correctly it took me & father in-law about half hour to 45 mins including removal off of the junk car. Haven't had problem since.

Are they frozen stuck to the windshield? Try some de-icer or move the car to a heated garage.

Now they sound like theyre working but no action.Sounds like the linkage is disconnected/damaged.
