Question about Bosch 800-watt Universal Plus Mixer with Attachments Mixer with Cookie Paddles & Bowl Scraper
In the middle of kneading dough my Universal Plus mixer dough hook stopped. The motor is still working. The drive shaft turns with great force when inserted by itself in the drive gear. But once inserted into the bowl, it will no longer spin with enough force to turn the dough hook. Its like something is loose within the drive shaft/bowl section. What do I need to fix it? New drive shaft? Bowl? Thanks.
To give the mixer strength it has planetary gears. Something may be wrong in the gear section

Sounds like the belt came off when you tried to mix the frosting while it was cold. Just too much of a load. It will have to be taken apart and the belt put back on.

Hi HENNY346. Your Bosch mixer is belt driven and from the description of your mixer’s symptoms I suspect that the drive belt has come loose or failed completely so it stopped driving the dough hook. You say that when you turn the mixer on, it makes a noise, which may be the motor running without any load, but your description of ‘noise’ is very vague.
The good news is that you should be able to diagnose and fix this quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself, if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty.
Here are links to two online parts vendors for your Bosch mixer that also provide an exploded view diagram along with part names, numbers and prices. They are: Cook's Quarters and AppliancePartsPros.com It can be very gratifying to go “under the hood”, figure out what’s wrong and fix it yourself. Good luck , I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

I had (have) the same problem with mine. It would stick occasionally and then one day it wouldn't come off at all. The bowl would unlock and turn like it should but wouldn't lift off. After much time and effort I did manage to get it off and found that the splines on the shaft were scored. When I examined the receiver part, the lugs (splines?) on it were worn allowing the shaft lugs (splines) to overlap the base lugs and thus becoming jammed.
I cleaned everything completely and made a batch of bread dough and it's stuck again.
I think the base receiver needs replaced but it may be part of the transmission and maybe the whole thing needs replaced, I don't know.
I sent an email and left a message with Bosch service and will post again when I hear from them.
I have used the mixer for about 4 years and love it but this problem shouldn't happen I don't think. It seems like a design flaw to me.
