Probably stripped the little splines where wiper arm attaches to pivot. Flip the cover up where arm attaches to pivot, and tighten nuts on there, but be careful not to go too far, its not hard to snap the pivot stud if you tighten too much. make sure wipers are off, in park position, and move arms to where they should be, then tighten. See if you still get loud noise after. If you do, somethings wrong under cowl, in the linkages or motor. You may be able to see something with flashlight or troublelight.

There are three possible points of failure; the motor, the parking switch, and finally the switch that turns it on.
Obviously, the motor is located in the hatch itself but also there will be a parking switch that supplies power to the motor after the user switch is turned off and until the blade is in the park position. The user switch is of course located on the dash or in a stalk on the steering column.
To find the culprit (and for future use around the home and cars), I recommend that everyone should own a cheap digital multimeter. They are available from Radio Shack and auto parts stores for under $20 US and if you have a Harbor Freight Tool store in your area, for under $10 US.
This will give you the means to check for voltage at the motor and/or continuity of it. You should be able to eliminate the items that are working in 20 or 30 minutes.
These meters come with a simple Chinglish instruction sheet that will give you the basics in case you are not familiar with them.
You probably won't avoid opening up the inside panel(s) to gain access for your tests.

Removal & Installation
The wiper motor hopefully is ok, but if the wiper arms were not mounted at the right spot, it could have damaged the motor as it returned to the rest position, unfortunately.
If there is noise, the noise could be coming from the wiper arm joint being stripped out or the motor itself assuming that the ball joints under the hood and behind the firewall are still connected.
Check these items, and I'm sure you will get to the bottom of this.
Good luck on this repair.
