I can't get the dough attachment off my Kitchenaid stand mixer. I have tried oil, filling up the bowl with soapy water and letting it stand overnight, pouring teapot after teapot of boiling water ove


Hi Georgette
You need to encourage movement between the beater and the silver shaft it locks on to. There is nothing that you can unscrew to make it easier. Get a can of CRC and try & get it around the silver shaft at the top of the beater plus you should be able to get a bit in that side slot where the beater engages with that driving pin. Rock (twist) the beater side to side and slowly the grip will loosen and you will be able to encourage it off. Once you have it off you will need to clean out the CRC and polish up that silver shaft. Next is the more difficult part, you need to polish up that hole in the beater. What you are trying to do is remove the build up of flour in the hole so that it is pretty much shiny in there again without being significantly bigger than it was originally. I use a rat tail (round) file to do this job, you are just removing the darker build up in there. When done a good wash and dry and it will be like new again. Keep the hole clean of flour and it may not happen again.

Dough hook does not come out


At the point of attachment where the hook is attached to the beater shaft, spray hot soapy water from a window spray bottle on the connection. Very hot water is necessary and eventually the water will seep into the locking space and allow you to twist it off. Repeat several times if it fails the first time around.

Beater is not close enough to bowl


If it is a ksm103 there should be a spring on the shaft, it should look similar to this: http://www.mendingshed.com/kacentershaft.html

When adjusting the screw you should be turning it out, which will make the beater closer to the bottom of the bowl, when properly adjusted you should be able to place a dime in the bowl, and the flat beater should just move it around barely. that would be about 1/16" in clearance.

Kitchenaid difficulty removing whisk


It is not uncommon for gunk batter sugar eggs or other stuff to get up inside the attachment shaft of the mixer and if you don't use it for a while it can turn to glue. remember school flour and water = glue. well add some sugar and some eggs and "wallah" you got glue. How to fix? Get a squirt gun. yep fill it with hot water and squirt it up in the hook and loop portion of the attachment shaft let it sit for 5-10 mins and repeat a couple times. the beater should come off, clean the shaft and then the whisk soak the attachment portion in hot water and let soak to soften the gunk and the spray it out with the sink sprayer. hope that helps. There could be one other mechanical problem and that is the hook that the beaters hang on could be coming out and caused the attachment to jam up ther take a pencil or pen and while pressing the beater up see if the pin wiggles or wobble and most importantly goes back into the mounting shaft. let us know if this helps at all.

I cannot remove the mixer attachment from the mixer. It will not move, or twist to the side to release.


Use a small amount of vegetable oil to lubricate the beater shaft and
the beater. Slightly tap the beater up and sideways with a rubber mallet
until you can move the beater easily along the shaft.

Have a 20 plus year old Kenwood chef [navyblue and white] don't know the model number. When the K beater or whisk are attached they rotate for a few seconds then fall out any ideas what to do


for both attachments to fall out the planet hub must be worn out. check that there is a spring clip in the groove of the beaters. if you have had it repaired recently it may be running backwards which woluld eject the attachments.

How to change attachments beaters. The attachments clicked in but now I can not get it to release the beater.


The mixer does seem to resist letting go of attachments in an annoying way... this is a known issue and the only way to handle it is to 'put your back into it' I'm afraid.

I cannot get the beater to lock in place. The


Hi VBPROSANDY, When you say beater, I assume you mean your flat beater. Are you having the same problem with your Wire Whip beater and dough hook? If you are not, then the first thing I’d do is look inside the flat beater’s attachment well, to see that there is nothing; i.e. hardened food, dough or batter, in the bottom of it that would prevent the agitator shaft and groove pin from seating properly. The flat beater has two drain holes at the bottom for drainage, but if these get plugged it may prevent accumulated ‘gunk’ at the bottom from escaping, and over time the buildup may prevent the beater from seating properly.
If you find the beater attachment well is clean, then from the KA Instruction manual, to attach the flat beater...
1. Slide speed control to OFF and unplug.
2. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.
3. Turn beater to left, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.
Finally, check the groove pin on the agitator shaft to make sure it hasn’t become bent so that it doesn’t fit the beater properly. Pins shouldn’t bend, but sometimes they do.
The beater attachment process should not require any effort as the agitator shaft should easily fit into the beater’s attachment well and easily turn to the left. Your planetary should not move during this process and if it does move it will take some effort on your part to turn it. The fact that you’re turning the planetary means you’ve turned the beater as far to the left as it should go to ‘lock’ it. When you get this far, let go and the beater should fall into place on the groove pin.
Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

Kitchen aid--heavy duty mixer


The beater is held in place by a pin and spring arrangement. Lift and twist the beater. If that doesn't work, the pin is trying to come out...and is wedging against the beater. Tap the pin back in a bit, and the beater should release.
