Your wiper motor may be stripped.

You will need to get under the hood and check all mechanical links to rule this out.

If both wipers are stopped and the motor is still running it's most likely the connection right at the motor.

Replacing ithe motor would be your only option. $150 bucks at Autozone. Not too bad eh?

Pop the base off the wipe where is attached to wiper motor. Loosen the nut on wiper and move to the bottom and tighten. Should work properly now. Likely loose now which is why it got this way.
