I have a LG top load washer model WT5480CW where my tub spins freely but the agitator will not spin freely and will not agitate. It will do the cycle just fine but when it tries to agitate it’ll just spin the tub. Upon inspecting everything (rotor, magnetic stasis coupling etc, the couple checks out good. When the washer is on it’s side I can spin the agitator plate freely without the rotor on there. While the rotor is in place and still on its side I can still spin it freely but when I place it up right it’s locked up. But without the rotor in place and standing up right the plate spins freely. Does that sound like the magnets are going bad? Or is there something else to look for?
