It sounds like the accessory drive gear and the bevel gear have failed. It's unlikely the gear on one will fail without wrecking the other. It's going to involve splitting the gear cases to find out. Back cover off, black wire and white wire unclipped from speed control plate. Upside down on a towel and pedestal off. Chrome drip ring off, punch pin through on planetary and remove it. Undo 9 screws through from bottom gearcase and you can lift the bottom case off the top and find out. If the gears are ground up you will need to clean all the old contaminated grease out and replace it along with the damaged gears. The grease is special food grade grease available from kitchen aid probably in a large enough tin that will ensure you never need to buy more in your lifetime.
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.
What exactly are you having problems? Setting up the grinder? The hopper inserts into the back side of the mixer head locks in place with a set screw. Then insert the piece that looks like an auger push it all the way back. next, comes the four blade knife it looks like this " + " if look at the center of the blade you will notice a square hole on one side place that side towards the auger. Then there are your grinder attatchments I only have two,one coarse, one fine. place one of them against the blades placing the tabs in the cutouts on the discharge end. mext there is a large metal cap thread this on the discharge. Set the control to grind and the speed to 10. You are set to go. cut the meat into strips or chunks that will fit down the infeed and use the plastic plunger to push them into the auger.
