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.

Seems JW posted one model, but linked to another. I fixed his link so the model he posted goes to the correct APP page.


It's really easy to post model and part number links in your topics now.
