Our LG top load washer is making a weird rubbing noise when agitating. It's not so much a grinding as it is rubbing. It stops after a while but want to address it before it gets worse. I've included a sound clip of the noise.

I'd first check your pulsator to see if it's starting to strip on the clutch shaft it mounts onto.

Here's the Pulsator Assembly for your model:
AGZ72909711 Pulsator Assembly


If the pulsator is not stripped, then it possibly the clutch is making that noise.

Here's the clutch/bearings assembly for your model:
AEN73131406 Housing Assembly,clutch


Also check the rotor at very bottom of the machine.

Here's the rotor for your model:
