This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.

If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.

Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.

Kitchen aid artisan mixer is loose and shaking


This could be the pivot rod between the head and the column being loose and out of place. Or it could be the hook activated by the lock lever not engaging properly. See the following Service Manual:

My Kitchen Aid ksm150ps stand mixer mixes only at high speed even on the first setting. What could be the problem?


sounds like the set screw in the back unit is too tight. Take off the back cover with the single screw up top. On the switch assembly that is now revealed, run the switch back and forth to see how it is interacting. The small set screw at the bottom probably needs loosened or tightened to give you the other speeds.
