The mixer's planetary is not disconnected when the meat grinder is attached and continues to turn.
If the noise you hear only occurs when the grinder is in place, then the grinder may be assumed to be the cause. Consult the meat grinder's instructions and make sure that nothing is loose or overtightened.
About the machine rocks, the whole machine rocks or just the Head? If it is just the Head you may want to check to see if the set screw that holds the lock in place is still there or lose. The scress is located on the right side of the machine if you are looking straight at it in use. It is at the bottom of the head close to where the head attaches to the pedistool. If it is missing post back to this discussion and I will find the part # and place that you can purchase the part.
The second issue, the pasta attachment is not locking in properly. There is no way to ajust how the pasta attachment fits. I would try and return the attachment and exchange it for another as they are mass produced and may not have got the shaft down to the proper tolerances to fit.
I hope this helped and please post any other questions you have to this thread.
Firstly I would check it is fully engaged. If it is, remove the food grinder and look into the hole. You should be able to see a square hole inside. Turn on the mixer, the square hole should spin, if it does not, one of the gears inside the head has most likely broken. To repair this you will need to take the head apart.
The other possibility is that I misread your problem and that the grinder is turning, but the meat wont go through the plates at the end. This is a common issue which happens if the blade is not put in the end of the grinder. The blade is shaped like a cross and cuts the meat when it reaches the end of the screw.
just did mine a200f. try this, if all gears are in line place bearing cap back on planitary this is the cap on top. this should hold bearing in check from moving up and down. if this works for you remember not to over tigthen bottom jam nut, lower end should move freely. post to let me know if this solves your problem.

This is a common issue with the Kitchenaid food grinder. The black residue is a product of the meat itself.
With Kitchenaid Food Grinder Attachments, it is recommended that the meat be partially frozen before grinding. This is to ensure a quality grind and to make sure the meat holds all its juices while grinding.
If any juices from the meat are leaked into the food grinder, the friction will cause a chemical reaction and turn the juice from the meat into a black substance.
This may be a problem with assembly of the Sausage Stuffer Attachment. Your Use and Care Guide for both the Food Grinder and Sausage Stuffer could illustrate the assembly for you in detail.
Also, it may take up to 4 minutes after meat is fed through the top of the Food Grinder for it to start stuff into the casings. The meat is fed into the Food Grinder, ground, and then pressure is built up behind this ground meat to push into casings.
