HELP! Urgent, Windshield Wipers Not Working

On my way home last night, wipers were doing their job, then all of a sudden stopped working. They did not return to "home" but stayed where they stopped. I have checked the fuse in the engine compartment and also the one on the passenger side inside and have replaced both relays in the engine compartment. Am I missing anything besides the motor? I have the Haynes book so going to check motor voltage.....
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
p.s. we have a storm coming through for the next few days and need to be able to see.

Only other thing would be wiper switch but motor is more likely by the looks of the amount for sale on ebay.

I found out the problem was the nut on the wiper arm fell off which let the arm fall off too. Got it working now but next time, I'm going to follow the Haynes book instead of trying to fit my hands between the motor and firewall.
