I tend to agree with Greg on this and most certainly on the " terrible" bend in that liquid tight…
However, in the situation where the electrician ran possibly NM throught the drilled hole into the back of the disconnect......well we do it here all the time from crawls without any problem or concern.
Ok...334.12(A)(10)(D)saysType NM or NMS cable shall not be used as followed ( and I will only stick to the one that applies ) Where exposed or subject to "EXCESSIVE" moisture or dampness.
Laster in Art.334.116 States: Type NM , the overall covering SHALL BE flame retardant and moisture resistant.
Now...depending on what is on the other side of that wall....and how it is ran...could be stapled to the underside joists then through a hole to the disconnect......
To be honest with you...half the installs in romax would not comply if you take "EXCESSIVE" to any application....a normal crawl in my opinion is not damp or wet...not subject to RAIN and if done correctly should not be overly wet at all....
Also it could be NMC cable as well......
Overall in my opinion it really depends on the crawl and how it GOT to the location it is at now.
it is something I personally would not write up...but I guess you gotta be their.
