Macintosh LC Floppy error

hi guys I have a problem with the floppy drive of my macintosh lc, it reads the floppies to me but you can't finalize the formatting (neither in MSDOS nor MAC format), has anyone had a similar problem?

verify failure

Error #-84 is Track Failed to Verify.

There may be a problem with the write circuit of the FDD. Check for leaking caps on the floppy drive, they should all have them by now.

I don't see leaky capacitors on the floppy pcb, the ones on the motherboard I have replaced all. So are you telling me that it is impossible that the floppy head has problems? Shouldn't be reading right? I am going crazy

The magnetic head is fine,

The magnetic head is fine, since it reads perfectly well.
