That's a Hotpoint rim-flo with a GE skin.

That's a 100% GE Filter-Flo washer with the filter pan widened and then mounted on the rim of the tub rather than the top of the agitator with the old filter flume capped underneath the rubber rim guard and redirected down towards the aforementioned filter. The first GE automatics had this type of lint filter which disappeared after a couple of years (resurrected later as the Filter-Flo).


No Taylor Avenue Hotpoint washer ever had a "Rim-Flo". There was no "Hotpoint" rim filter until the brand was totally assimilated by GE and equipped with a few cosmetic alterations to convince the public that this was a sovereign brand when in fact, it was a close clone, 95% GE and barely 4% Hotpoint. Not even as distinct as a Kenmore from a Whirlpool.


Some prefer the rim-flow design to the Filter-Flo, but I've always appreciated the option of removing the lint manually rather than allow it to add to the non-biodegradable crud in my already challenged septic system and leaching field. In reality the amount of lint is so minimal unless you are Armenian or own a dog.

Not quite a Profile set

The Profile model of this washer actually had the Filter Flo pan, and I think still had the mini-basket. Not sure what the difference between the dryer was.

I'd say these are pretty close to Profile, maybe just below the TOL given all of the options.

I've picked up probably 10-12 of those washers over the years. Each one had a major oil leak.
