Either the motor is on the way out (not likely) or the starting capacitor is on the way out (likely). This looks like a large battery with the marking 8Uf on the side. Just replace this. Part is cheap.

Wondering if other people have a Miele front loader that puts holes in their clothes

There are a number of reasons this could happen.
(1) If the items damaged are nylon or silk (very fine fabric )and the machine is on a fast spin they could be forced through the holes in the drum and get nicked by the heater as the drum turns.
Solution is don't put fine fabric on very fast spin programs.
(2) There could be a weak joint in the inner drum which opens out during fast spin or a heavy load. Test the inner drum by pushing down on the edges where the back meets the wall.
(3) Overloading the machine. Put less in

Not spinning..although drum turning and draining as normal.. Thanks

Could be a imbalance with the load inside the machine if there is too much or too little clothes in. Had this the other week on a machine when owner had only put a couple of items in, when the items were wet the were heavy on one side of the drum and the load sensors stopped the machine from spinning up. Remove clothes from machine and try empty, if it works properly either throw some more stuff in to help even the weight or remove some stuff if overloaded.

Drum is sparking when spinning the clothes

Sounds to me as though the main drum bearings have gone and the drum is catching the internal parts.
I f the drum is turned by hand and it feels rough or is noisy, then it is the main bearings.
