Question about 2001 Lexus RX 300
This is likely the switch assembly itself. The switch is an integrated and self contained unit. The motor and regulator assembly would fail or have more definative symptoms than what you are describing. Here are the instructions for removing the switch assembly. Let me know if you need anything else. Fig. Using a suitable prytool (or a screwdriver with it-s tip taped to prevent damage), carefully disengage the hook, remove the power window regulator master switch

I would suspect the switch is the problem, the drivers side window switch is the most used and fails first no matter the make of car, it is a common problem. My suggestion is to have the dealer replace driver side master switch plate first and then see if it fixes the problem, I will bet it will. I have done a search of the problem at Lexus owners sites and this switch is a common problem. As far as pinpointing the problem goes you will need a factory scanner to watch the signal from the switch going into the Body Control Module. The dealer has not conformed this problem and that is why they want to cover all the bases and replace the motor and the switch. The switch is very easy to replace and doesn't require the door panel be removed. To remove the old master switch plate do this, insert a small flat blade screwdriver under the rear of the switch panel and pull up, it might be kind of hard to get out so pull hard! a tip for not scratching the panel would be to put electrical tape on the end of the screwdriver that your using

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
If that's the case then the problem will be just on the window motor. If it's worn out issues like this occurs. No need to replace the switch and regulator for the motor is the only one at stress.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
