Hello there.  I would be fairly confident in advising that a Miele washing machine would easily match those requirements. Having said that, filling up with water and pumping out the water should be pretty much the same across all washing machines. The noise caused by water going into the washing machine is dictated mostly by the amount of air and water pressure in your plumbing. And all washing machine manufacturers tend to use pumps that are essentially identical in the way that they work.

To be honest they are mostly quite quiet on wash cycle these days if they do not have any carbon brushes fitted. These brushless motors are becoming far more common. The only way to be sure if the motor has carbon brushes fitted or not is to spin the drum round by hand, which you might be able to do if there is a demonstration model in a store that has had the transit packaging removed. If it makes a clicky, whiny, ratchety sound then the motor has carbon brushes. If the drum hardly makes a sound at all when you spin it by hand then it will have brushless motor. Such a motor will be almost silent on wash and rinses and slightly quieter on spin. It's possible some manufacturers might list brushless motor in their technical specifications so you might be to find out online too.
