The Miele washer has a 1400 rpm drum speed. My old set was is 25 years old and it wasn’t heat pump, the washer had a max 1200 rpm the dryer was 240v 15a still far less than others at the time.
My daughter is still using the old set and loves them. Never been worked on.
That 697 was most likely the final clearance price to get rid of the purple and pink units. I see the new model on the floor once in a while, priced about double that.

I found that running a 240v electric dryer off 120v power makes it pretty effective.

If you really want the ultimate in low electricity use, get a gas dryer.
