This is the way that I buy appliances:
I read up about the appliance on the Wisebuy site (in Hebrew). Here’s the link for the Wisebuy’s info about washing machines:
If the Hebrew is a problem, you can use the Google Toolbar in Internet Explorer to translate the pages.
Once I have an idea of what l’m looking for, I usually take a trip to Talpiot and check out the big appliance stores. In Kinyon Hadar you can check out Shekem Electric and Home Center. Nearby, you can also check out Machsanei Chashmal.
Usually, I then have a good idea of what I want. I then go to www.zap.co.il
to compare prices and buy over the Internet. Zap gives you store ratings as well as price comparisons.
Hope this helps.
