Hello
Thanks for the donation.

It sounds like you may have stripped out the teeth on one of the wiper gears. This will cause the wiper arm to jump off of track and get out of sync with the other. You can try removing the wiper arm that is out of sync and replacing it back into correct position when they are both off and idle at the bottom of the windshield. If it gets out of sync again then you will need to replace the gear.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for using 2carpros. Com!
