Go to an auto parts store like auto zone and have them look at it. It may be the arm is stripped out, may need a new wiper arm which they would be more than happy to replace for you.

Nothing wrong with the arms. Arm that moves driver side wiper has hard plastic cavity insert. That is worn out. Parts cost about 4 dollars and come in different sizes. Pick size for yours and has to fit in the arm very tightly. Add a bit of lubricant and snap back to connecting arm. To get to the problem you have to remover cover that over the mechanism. Pain in the neck but a repair shop will cost you a bundle of money. If you have the money have them do it.
