Reports in July rumored that GE was considering selling its appliance business.According to Reuters, the deal could be worth more than $2.5 billion.  Electrolux is the world's second-largest home appliance maker after Whirlpool.GE considered separating from its appliance business in 2008, but then invested heavily in production at Appliance Park.
