Question about Hobart AM14-253 Free-standing Dishwasher
Force and a torch is your path.
First cut a block of wood that is of a length that is long enough to go from the column to the attachment portion of the planetary. (The block protects the gears from the force.)
Look at the rotation of the hook, you're going to twist it the opposite direction. Above the hook, loop a strand of a wet towel. While keeping the towel damp, not wet, torch the **** out of the hook. I recommend "mapp" gas. Heat it for about 90 seconds to to 2 minutes. The old dough stuck inside will burn off. You should get some black smoke. Use the block of wood, between the attachment portion of the planetary and the column, to resist the twist of the hook. If the wood is properly placed to absorb the load --- dampen towel, torch, block, TWIST. If you use a wrench -- be cautious. Good luck

"There are 2 set screws.Make sure their both out,if for some reason there is only 1 set screw these are your options.Heat the shaft and remaining pin with a mapp torch (you can buy them at home depot,lowes for $40 bucks),heat it up really good then get a punch and try to knock out the pin,option 2---if you cant get the pin out then youll have to replace the shaft and if thats the case you should also clean out the planetary and replace the bearings and seals.If the hole in the shaft is oblongated or worn you should probably replace the shaft because the dough hook will rock the pin back and forth breaking the pin.Also look inside the hook and make sure thatI its not worn out where the pin sets.IF you see thee hook or shaft pinhole worn you will break the pin again if you are able to replace the pin.I work for hobart and service mixers regulary,if you need part numbers or advise let me know."

You should be able to push up on it and turn at the same time it should come off.
