Poor connection on armature brushes inside window motor. Try pressing window switch to the down position and rap hard on bottom of door panel at the same time.

I would check power to the switch. You could have blown a fuse or broke a wire going into the door. You can pry the switch panel off the door from the top with a flat bladed screw driver. There's a indentation there for that purpose. It's fairly common for older cars to break the wires in the rubber conduit between the car body and the door. They break because they bend every time the door is moved.

there should be a "relay" for it that may have gone bad.
