I actually have seen this issue on different vehicles so it may not work but here is the most common I have noticed. Either the window is off track or the regulator is tangled up or destroyed. Easy fix for both solutions. Simply remove door panel and determine which applies. If neither is the issues, please respond with update.Best of luck!

There are 3 plastic balls that give away by the worm gear in the motor. Those balls wear out and the window will not go up but you can still hear the motor running. There is a kit for about $10 that you can get at the auto parts store or you can clean it out and use 3 lock nits to replace the balls, but this will break your worm gear if the window ever jams in the future. don't roll the window up on anything and you will never have a problem using the 3 nuts, it will last forever. Use the lock nuts or use 2 nuts stacked on top of each other for a total of 6 regular nuts to replace the plastic balls. If you do not know where the worm gear is and do not know how to remove your window motor then take it to a mechanic, do not attempt this on your own. Good luck!
