Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the switches and motor have been ruled out then you have a wiring issue. There may be an open circuit anywhere between the master switch and the window motor but the most common place to find a broken wire is in the boot between the door and body. When you open the door you'll note a rubber boot between the door and body. This is where the wiring runs from the door to the main harness. This wiring flexes each time the door is opened and closed and can eventually break. The next thing I would recommend is inspecting the wiring in the right rear boot, if no problems are found then move to the left front.
