Default Wiper motor crank arm stuck?

My crank arm keeps getting stuck in this position. Almost like my motor is spinning it backwards. What the heck is going on here, how do I fix this? Possible bad motor?

you can spin it to get it lined up unless the motor is bad but these things operate on a cam ..the motor just spins and the part you have rotates with the cam regulating movement.

have you tried realigning it?
