In our old house in Washington we had the Whirlpool Ultra capacity Axis washer and dryer. They were energy star.. conserved water really well.. but sometimes I dont think things got as clean. They cost around $1800 for the pair, if I remember correctly. The best price we found was at Lowes, because they "matched the price" of the ones at Sears and took off 10%!!
When we bought our house in Utah it didnt come with appliances so we had to buy cheaper ones.. we bought the cheap GE plain old washer and dryers and I have to be honest.. they work just as well, but they arent energy star so they use alot more water and electricity than the old ones. Its a trade off. They cost less, but our water and energy bill are a bit more.
My mom swears by her Maytags.. says they are the best shes ever owned.
