Wiper switch problem? 1968

Hey guys. My wipers only move when you push the knob in which I think is washer mode. Then they seem to work just fine. Of course I rathe not keep hitting the knob all day.

I am new to this old car. How does the washer work, when it actually does?

Is this a motor issue or a switch issue?

It could be the switch not making a good ground on the dash. check and clean area (sand to clean metal and use some no-ox or dialectric grease)behind dash where switch seats there should be a special star washer that helps make a good ground when unit is tightened then try again and see if it works
