What about the new Kenmore's low end non HE agitator style 3.4 cube ft. I think they are still made by Whirlpool but not positive. Any feedback on those?

Crosley makes a VMW with an agitator, so beware if you think since it has an agitator it is OK. For the money Speed Queen but their prices just jumped $100 so are expensive,still worth it.

Even the direct drive washer like roper new at lowes the one that has the coupling we are all use to is different in that it does not fill all the way to the top with water like the old ones because of the 2011 law that says you have to make a washer use less water. Go to lowes web site and look up roper that is a direct drive then down load manual and you we see what i mean .

NTW4501XQ1 Appears to be a direct drive to me  O0
The reason I knew it was is because a vmw washers controls do not flip up like a direct drive does. You have to remove the rear panel of the control panel and then slide the top forward and the top raises up. That is how I changed the lid switch. The direct drives top does not pop up.
