The spindle that turns the kneeding paddle came out--appears that the ball-bearings or whatever held it in disintegrated with a lot of use. The machine is over 6 years old--used on average of at least once or twice a week.
Can this be fixed? Replaced?

Re: Fixing the Cup
Take the breadmaker to any decent machine shop and show them the problem bearing - these bearings are standard and they will be able to find the right type and size to fit. Actually replacing the bearing is usually pretty easy, although sometimes heat and/or cold etc may need to be applied to get the old one off or new one on.
Get them to check there is not also a rubber seal or similar that needs replacing too, as often there will be.
Definitely can be fixed if all else is working fine. A new bearing shouldn't be expensive, $5-$20 would be about right and probably it's at the cheaper end of that.
If it turns out that the bearing is a special one that they cannot get hold of, see if you can post back with a picture and some measurements, and any writing that is on the side of the bearing itself - hopefully we can source one easily enough online.
Hope this helps :)

forget the torch idea as it will damage the axle
bearings appear hard but in fact cut readily with an angle grinder
cut at an angle and almost all the way in
get a cold chisel and hit the cut hard and the bearing will crack and be easy to pull off
As long as the drive mechanism beneath the pan is still stiff to turn and fels like it engages the motor you should be fine. See pic. The centre 4 spike drive unit is what is important. Normally the toothed drive belt will fail. If this is still good then replace the pan.

More than likely you are talking about the front wheel bearings.If they are sold in just the bearing by itself the spindle assembly has to be reemoved from the car and the old bearing pressed out ands the new one pressed back into the spindle.If it is sold as a hub and bearing assembly ,it is held in place by three bolts and a center nut.This job is best performed by a repair shop.

Hi, Take the bread pan and paddle out of the machine and see if the paddle spins freely by hand. If it sticks then the sealed bearing is failing. If everything is good here, check the tension on the belt pulley. The belt may be too loose to spin the paddle freely under load. Belt and motor is inside the base of the machine. Good Luck..Hank
Ball joints appear to be the cause. Anytime there is un/down left/right movement in the wheel. Get it done soon as the ball joints hold the spindle to the control arm and if it pops out the wheel comes off...not good when driving
Hi, There is a sealed bearing at the bottom of the pan. This allows the paddle to rotate. The bearing has failed and is falling apart. This usually happens with age or use. Time for a new bread pan. If you are lucky you can find one on ebay. Sorry for the bad news....Hank
