If the window motor makes a noise like it "wants to operate" then the switch and fuse are probably OK and the problem is more likely to be the window regulator that has failed. If you hear no noise then the fuse, switch or wiring (particularly pay attention to the flexible harness that goes between the door and the body as it flexes each time the door is opened and closed and wires may have frayed in the harness ) could be at fault. With the engine running (for higher circuit voltage) try operating the window switch in the up/close position with the door open keep your finger operating the switch to the close position and slam the door closed, sometimes it will jar the motor if it has stopped on a dead spot within the motor windings but it is a sign of a bad window motor. The inner door trim panel will have to be removed to inspect the window motor and mechanism and check for power to see what the problem is. Removing the door trim may be tricky and easy to damage trim that is expensive to replace if damaged! You would need illustrated instructions so as not to damage the trim.
