After i read the first part on this i reversed my thinking that it is not the hub gears now it has to be the suspension cups. Sorry about my first analysis

what does the inside of the rotor where the splines mesh look like. There shouldn't be that much play. Is the stator bolts tight?

Yes... Statorbolts good and tight.   New agitator gears too.   Splines on the main shaft and inside the rotor looked good to me... No signs of damage I could see.   I think that's the whole drive system besides the motor ,  right?
