Default 96 Civic front defroster not working... all other functions work.

So my front defroster doesn't work on my civic. The AC works nice and cold, it goes to a nice warm heater when I want it to and my rear defroster works too. It's just when I change the air flow of the vents, it doesn't change. I can hear something whirring in the dash, but nothing changes.

The thing is, it used to work and one day it failed. I thought my climate control was dead, I just changed it and still no work.

broken or stuck blend door/position door. that is the whirring - the door is trying to move, but is not.
