When running any cycle the agitation is good for the first 30 seconds or so, then clicks down to gentle agitation for the rest of the cycle wash cycle. The clothes barely move. There are no diagnostic errors. The agitation looks good when doing a quick test. I have taken apart the agitator and all the parts look fine.

I tried this; however I can't get the washer to perform the test. The lid lock light does not illuminate so the test can start. Thus, it just flashes all lights and doesn't not start. The lock detection works during regular use. I did notice that if you pause during the wash cycle it will not unlock so you can open the lid no matter how long you wait. I believe it would unlock before.

Here's the lid lock switch for your model:

If the lid lock switch is good, then it sounds like a main control board problem.

Here's the main control board for your model: Cntrl-Elec W11411581
