YES, it could be a faulty/weak wiper motor. This is very common and we see this all of the time in the shop. You would need to confirm the power and ground circuits to the wiper motor check out good before replacing it and be sure that the wiper linkage is not binding up for any reason. If all checks out good, replace the wiper motor and you will be good to go!
