It can be the motor drier that has failed as you can use an external jumper wire to connect to the motor to see if this works, if so use a wire to a switch and operate it manually.
If the motor is faulty then you will need to manually turn the grooves to let the glass up .... but you can open the motor and clean the brushes to contact the commutator so as to repair it for the time being ...just take a try.

Sometimes tapping on the motor with a screwdriver handle or lightly with a hammer will get them to work long enough to get them rolled back up. You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the motor.

Take your time removing the door panel. there are usually a couple of screws that need to be removed and then the panel itself is help on with plastic push pins. Starting at the bottom of the door pull gently but firmly (they also make a tool for this called a door panel trim remover). You will feel the pins start to pop and the panel will start to pull away from the door. If at any point the panel starts to flex like something is holding it to the door than stop because there is probably another hidden screw somewhere.

the other possibility is that the regulator is bad. If that's the case than there is nothing you can do besides remove the window from the regulator and tape the window in the up position.

I wish I could be more specific on how to remove the door panel.
