Either the motor has taken a dump or the little white plastic wheel has cracked, broken or fallen off completely. You can cut through the plastic and tape it up later. Go ahead ,... you can do it! I dare you!
The motor is held in place via 3 #4 torq screws that run through the regulator and into the motor. I bet you have the motor on the wrong side of the regulator, upside down or backwards. It's the only way it can go.
To test: Take the regulator and attached motor out. Detach it from regulator and run the window from the switch. If it works it's good. Put it inot the regulator and test again. sometimes it binds. Often as a result of the little white wheel going so it sips out of the track and jacks up.
If the switch is good it is usually the motor and wheel issue.
