Need help with Image Carousel

I have uploaded my workspace.

The area in question is towards the bottom of the javaScript file. I have appended arrows and, when you click them, they are traversing the DOM correctly. I have checked via the console. However, the images aren't sliding. I am not sure what it is I am doing wrong.

I have tried adding in jQuery .css statements, animate statements and nothing is working.

As for traversal, it grabs everything within the li tags and, it marks the current li tag as checked and unchecks where it came from. I'm not yet sure that is needed but, have added it in. I am currently also working on the left arrow as I assume once I can figure that out it won't be to difficult to then rewrite for the right arrow.

I have created a series of nav-dots as well that allow the carousel to be moved when clicking a dot. As the site is responsive, when you decrease the width of the browser a smaller carousel pops up that runs automatically and is paused when hovered on. Everything else works great.

So any help would be appreciated.

Can you elaborate on what the website is suppose to look like, and any functionality? Unfortunately, your images weren't uploaded, so it's difficult to know what the carousel is meant to look like.

I tried adding my own photos, but I'm not even getting the arrows you mentioned. If you could upload your most current files, and confirm that they're working as well as you expect I can take another look.

If you're not able to get an accurate copy of your files up here, I can talk more generally on how you might go about this, but it might get tricky to find the specifics.

I gave up and ended up just using the slick carousel. I wanted to actually create it by myself but realize that most people likely use code that is already written. I think I was trying to do to many things within the carousel that was causing problems as the images were loaded as background images. I was also running transitions on top. But thank you for the response.
