You have two problems. The first is the wipers turn off and stay in the upright position and do not close. The motor is fine. There is a steal 'close' tab that has been bent out of position. You just need to push the steal tab back into position. You can use a chisel or screwdriver to pound it back into the 90 degree position.
The windsheild washer motor probably needs to be replaced

This has happened a couple of times on my 1999 Pontiac Montana. Here's what I did to fix. Open the hood. Remove the shield over the the wiper cam mechanism on the passengers side. This is easy to access. Road salts and other dust and dirt gets in there and causes the sticking problem. Spray WD-40 in between the parts. Get in there with that little red spray straw and saturate it good, flush junk out. Get in the car and try the wipers. If I remember, you might have to manually place that little knob or lever on top of the cam in the opposite position to get it to resync, but try it first. Be sure the wipers are off when you're spraying the WD-40 so you don't injur your hands. I've had to do this twice and it worked both times.

As far as the wipers staying up this is a common problem with them. I have a 2002 that had the same problem. There is what they call call a park tab that tells the wipers where to park at when they are turned off. Technically the tab should be replaced however I got by with heating it up and bending it back into the shape it is suppose to be in. You have to remove the cowl below the windshield to get to the motor which is where it is located. I would say the skill level required for this repair is at least a 3 on a scale of 5 being most difficult
