Washer and dryer shopping has me completely overwhelmed. I need guidance to see through the soapsuds.

I've been shopping for a high efficiency, preferably front loading washer and dryer, for the past four months and I am completely at a loss as to what to do, seriously. The options are overwhelming and I do not do well with salespeople, I turn to you, Internet!
There are a few things I absolutely need (option for a super short wash and dry cycle of <40 minutes, minimum 4 cubic feet in washer, front loading, and steam cleaning). I'm trying to stay under $1400/each. Is there a website I can input my needs and it compiles a list of washer and dryers that fit my requirements? Or, better, any personal experiences with certain brands?
I'm leaning towards purchasing from a local business, but pointing me in the direction of online sites for price comparison or even what washer and dryer I should buy, I'd really appreciate it because my head is on spin-cycle right now.
