Sounds like the Motor Shaft that connects the motor to the wipers could be broken. It could also be the the wiper arm that connects the wipers to the motor is broken or disconnected.

are the nuts holding your wiper arms down tight? if so then it would be the part that connects to your wiper arms that is either disconnected or seized
