Can be either the motor itself or the window regulator. You will need to diagnose which one is faulty by removing the door panel and inspecting.

I agree with Tom's assessment. I also suggest you use a TEST LIGHT which will help find where your problem(s) maybe. I have experienced the switch prone becoming corroded from moisture and I used sand paper to clean the connectors.
