The cable or the window lifter guides are more then likely broken.You will need to remove the inner door trim to check the window mechanism. If the cable is broken you will get a crunching noise when you try to operate the window. The mechanism will have to be replaced.

IF there is a grinding noise then the motor is trying to move, so take out he unit and try to see if the motor works , if so the mechanism is faulty or the motor does not have power in the drive.
can be the driver switching the motor or the motor itself. Replace after testing the transistor drive.

Drivers side pwr window not working, motor runs but window will not move, in up position


If the motor moves then either the gears are stripped in the regulator or the window is off track. More then likely its the motor assembly which has the gears in it. Some older fords offer a gear rebuild kit for the window motors or you can buy the motor with the gear assembly for about 30$

Drivers electric window stuck in down position


actually you have thought of all but the prob. The track has jumped, making the motor not move the window. Sometimes you can gently slide the window up by hand and then the motor will catch the track and finish rolling the window up

you have to replace the window regulator reason why is because the cable ripped which would cause the motor to work without moving the window up or down .. regulator is the cable and the rails were the motor makes the woindow move up and down on. you have to replace it.
