Yes I'll miss that waterfall filter -- it was handy since we have dogs in the house :)

Westinghouse TL's were aesthetically cute, too bad for those darn indexing tubs.

@ aquatop: 

Keep an eye out for a vintage GE Filter-Flo.  They offer lint removal that's beyond compare, and probably aren't much louder when operating than your Westinghouse was.  I snagged an '80s machine for friends who had two dogs and its filter pan was always full of fur.


Here's a link to a video that I suppose is as good as any to indicate filtering capability on even a small load (FF to to around 5:00 to see what's in the filter pan) in a household that appears not to include any dogs or cats:
