Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

What you're describing are the normal symptoms when there is no signal from the park switch inside the wiper motor. The park switch sends a signal when the motor passes through the position where the arms would be when the motor should shut off. If the park switch signal is missing then it will cause what you're describing.

It would take some electrical testing to know for sure but most likely the wiper motor is going to need to be replaced.
