Hi and welcome to FixYa!
There's a couple ways to tell if it's the coupling.
One is to just tip the machine back a bit and look on the floor underneath for pieces of the coupler laying on the floor. :)
Also let it fill and check if it is agitating. I do a coupler repair a few times per week at least, and the customer always calls in saying "My machine will not spin"
When we ask if it still agitates, they often aren't even sure. Because they typically start the machine and walk away and come back later and find the clothes soaking wet from no spin cycle.
So check it out, it probably is the coupler (the clicking sound you described is a typical symptom)
Check to see if it agitates and if not, then you can figure a very strong chance it is a broken coupler.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Grinding Noise when Washer Attempts to Spin

It is probably the same problem because it is trying to drain during the spin cycle. My machine sounded as though a chain wis clanking, the solution was removing a coin caught in the drain pump. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.

You may need to install what they call shims in between the starter and the flywheel in order to align it correctly with the flywheel

SOURCE: Cricut not cutting anymore

I was reading lots of forums and tech support pages on how to get my Cricut back online. I went to the store and got the Deep Cutting Blade & Housing and I got two replacement blades for the original housing that came with the Cricut. I also bought a pack of new mats. I replaced the original blade with a new one, used a new mat, and tweaked the depth and speed of my cuts and my little Cricut is whirling again!

My Cricut Explore Air wont cut


If your Cricut machine is not cutting all the way through your material, or is only scoring the material, choose a machine below for specific troubleshooting tips. Fortunately this issue can usually be resolved with basic troubleshooting.

correct cut settings.
  • Remove the blade housing, then remove the blade and ensure that there are not any bits of paper stuck to the blade or lodged inside the blade housing. Ensure that you replace the blade housing correctly into the machine. Once clean, test your cuts again. If the blade and housing are already free from debris, or cleaning it did not help, proceed to 3.
  • Try an arm buoyancy test: gently press down on the black arms that surround the blade housing and then release them. Do they bounce right back up, or do they stick or rub in any way? If they stick or rub, please contact Customer Care through one of the options below for further assistance. If they bounce right back up when released, proceed to 4.
  • Increase the machine pressure settings and try your cuts again. If this does not change the cut result, proceed to 5.
  • Increase blade depth by turning the dial at the top of the blade housing. If this does not change the cut result, proceed to 6.
  • Perform a Hard Reset on the machine. If this does not help, proceed to 7.
  • Check your machine's firmware version. If the firmware is not up to date, perform a Firmware Update using Cricut Craft Room, a Gypsy device, or Cricut Design Studio.
  • Retry your cuts with a new blade housing.
  • If the machine is still not cutting through materials, or is only scoring the paper, please contact Customer Care through one of the options below for further assistance.
  • Forced Firmware Update on the machine through Cricut Sync.
  • Retry your cuts with a new blade housing. If the issue persists, proceed to 8.
  • Attempt a Format and Restore on the machine through Cricut Sync. Please note that this step should only be taken if all other steps have failed to resolve the issue.
  • If this does not resolve the issue, please contact Customer Care through one of the options below for assistance.
  • new blade. If this does not help, proceed to 5.
  • Adjust/increase the Multi-Cut setting in the Cricut Craft Room cut preview screen and retry your cuts. If this does not change the cut result, proceed to 6.
  • Retry a cut using a new blade housing.
  • If the machine is still only scoring or not cutting through the material, please contact Customer Care through one of the options below for assistance.

    Black plastic blade arm broke on cricut, where do i get replacement part


    Sheila,
    After much useless searching and an hour on hold with Cricut support, I finally got an answer. It would seem that the cradle arm is not a replaceable piece. Cricut can not supply anything to fix the problem. However, I have found that if you can get the cradle arm back into position you can lock it into place with the thumb screw. It will still hold the blade housing and marker/pen housings, you just have to be careful when removing them to make sure you don't damage your project. Hope this helps.

    The cricut blade holder doesn´t go up or down.


    My housing was not going up or down. Every time i wanted to make a cut it dragged and cut shapes in half. So when I took it apart I pushed it up and down myself and noticed that it was very difficult. So where you see the coils, I lightly sprayed WD40 (my cricut is out of warranty, I would not advise to take apart if you are still under a warranty). I lightly sprayed until it was easy to move up and down. When your done be sure to wipe any access WD40 that dripped to the bottom. This fixed mine and thank goodness because I was close to pulling out my hair! Hope this helps someone else!

    When the cricut is cutting it tears my paper even though the cardstock is good and the machine cannot cut anything intricate. I tried changing the blade, but the same problem still exists


    After having the Cricut for many years, I finally figured out how to cut the intricate cuts. Use multi cut 2, speed on med (3) and pressure on 4. I also keep my blade at 4. It takes a lot longer to cut but it cuts out good!

    My wifes' cricut seems to have had the same problem. Try turning off the power, then manually slide the cutting carriage to the left look inside to the right. you should see a red button pull on it until it clicks. power up the cricut and see it it works. it solved the problem for my wife.
