Question about KitchenAid KSM150PS Artisan Series Stand Mixer
I just finished a batch of dough. I can not get the Tilt to tilt back. The lock is stuck or something. I can see through a tiny hole in front that the lock button is trying to click but except for a little movement it will not release.

You may need to remove the head from the base to find the problem. This is a simple procedure, and is easily reversed, so if it doesn't help you, you can just put it back and take it to a repair shop later.
To remove the head:
First, make sure to unplug the mixer unit!
Next, turn the unit upside down. Inside the neck, you will see a screw. Use a slotted screwdriver to loosen (turn counter-clockwise) the screw a few turns. This will release the pivot pin on which the head swivels.
Push the pin out from one side using a long, slender implement (a screwdriver, pen, etc.). With the pin removed, the head will lift off of the base, and you may be able to determine the problem from there.
Best of luck!

If you're still having this problem, here's what I did a few minutes ago that fixed it. Lift the head, then turn the screw that connects the head to the base to the left. You're basically unscrewing it. That screw regulates how high or low the beater is. Unscrew it a little at a time, and lower the head and try to lock after each turn. The head will gradually get in a more locked position. Keep turning the screw till the head finally locks in all the way. Read the "beater to bowl clearance" section in the manual.

In my case the lock was not engaging fully because the internal mechanism was bent too short. I'm not sure if this happened over time or if it is just a manufacturing defect. If your mixer still has some up-and-down play to it when the lock is engaged, then you might have the same problem as me
To fix it, search this site and others for instructions on how to remove the motor cover. I found this video useful: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeCiivPt7hk
With the cover removed you have access to the locking mechanism. In my case, the latch is connected to the locking lever via a bent S-hook. The hook was just slightly too short which kept the latch from engaging completely. If you remove the two screws holding the hook in place and that allows the lock to close completely, then you have the same problem as me. (You'll feel the difference immediately. When fully locked, there is practically no wobble in the mixer head.)
I lengthened the hook by placing it against a flat surface and hammering the bend out a bit.
