On my ford ranger the same thing happen. Well I took the door panel off and looked inside the door. Well I found out that one of my brackets that is on the window motor was cracked off at the end of it which mounts the motor to the door frame. This was causing the motor to move out of place away from the teeth that move the window up and down. I fixed with some longer screws. But the screws came loose and it stripped the teeth at the end of the crank shaft thing.
So basically it is one or more of these four things
1. The screws are loose that holds that motor to the door frame.
2. Check the three mounts on the side of the motor, if any of the mounts are cracked I would go and replace the motor.
3. With the window up run your finger to the end of the crank and see if the teeth feel stripped, well if that the case then that is just another headache.
4. If you push the window button and nothing happens and you hear no noise coming from the motor like it is even trying to roll your window up your motor is most likely shot.
Hope this helps you in any way.
