I know these brands were bought by Electrolux/Frigidaire many years ago. Does anyone know what happened to them?

What is Electrolux doing with them- Are they still being sold or being phased out? Does anyone has any history on them?

I am really interested to know. Thanks

Thanks Jeff
This is interesting information but I would still like to get some hard hitting information on what is happening to these brands.
What is Electrolux's strategy with them? Are they planning to phase them out and promote only Frigidaire and ICON?
Are they even made manufactured anymore?
If so, where are they sold in North America?
etc., etc., etc....
Any thoughts?

our frigidaire store here in manitoba can still order base line washers with the white westinghouse name, basically builders grade no frills or trim
other than that i have not had a warranty call on any of the other names in years and was told they will be phased out
