Power Window Problem

I have a 2002 Ranger XLT. I'm having a problem with the driver's side power window. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The problem started about a week after we got some heavy rains. The drains at the bottom of the door were plugged with dirt and grass and there was quite a bit of water sloshing around inside the door. I don't know how high the water was or if it got on the power window motor, but it is mounted quite low in the door. So a few days later I went to roll down the window and it went down really slowly. I rolled it back up and it went really slowly too. Then it wouldn't move. It's been a few days now, and now the window either works normally at the normal speed or it doesn't work at all. The times when it doesn't work, I hear a clicking sound coming from under the steering column when I push the down button. The passenger side window works normally all the time.
I think it's the window motor that is bad, but I can't understand why sometimes it works fine and other times it doesn't work at all.
Has anyone ever had this happen?

Clean the contacts on the switch with sandpaper, apply some die-electric grease to the wire connector and the switch. This has worked for me previously, but good luck.
