This might help... the whisk has a slightly larger whole then the other attachments. it is also inset. there is a washer that holds the spring on. if that is slightly off or bent it won't sit in the Whisks inset right. look a little closer to that and the spring. if there happened to be dried on food that could be the slight difference that can prevent it from staying one. Hope this helps!!!

SOURCE: Hi Guys, here's my problem

ok firstly if you have a stand mixer with the lift bowl you have to put a dime on the side of the bowl at the base and see how much clearence is needed to be taken away. if the dime gets moved the mixer is ok. if not take off the flat beater, take out the bowl, and look at the back of the stand. just below the motor about 2 inches you will see a screw. turn it to the left a quarter of a turn. dont over adjust do it slowly. if you have the one that you tilt the head back on do the same thing with the screw up to you get to the adjusting part. the screw will be in a different spot on those mixers. it is located in the neck of the mixer. it is right in the area that tilts back. the dime shouldnt fly around the bowl it should just gently get tapped. and never use the wisk when adjusting always use the flat attachment. and always adjust slowly never over adjust.

Given the age of a 3-C stand mixer, finding additional parts for it will be exceedingly difficult. The best recommendation is through E-Bay or antiques stores - a specialty dealer. Kitchenaid parts distributors will no longer have anything in inventory for the 3-C mixer.

SOURCE: There is a knob that the whisk attaches to from

Hi ALLENJ740, I believe the ‘knob’ that you’re referring to on the agitator shaft (rotating column) is called a ‘groove pin’, and you should be able to replace it yourself. Before you get started, it would be helpful to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM50P (Your K5SS mixer falls within this manual), and select the first file KSM50P.pdf (438.31 KB) listed under Parts List (4) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled: “Case Gearing And Planetary Unit” which shows you an exploded view of all the mechanical parts and assemblies for your mixer. Locate Illus. No. 40, Agitator Shaft, Part No. 4176067. Unfortunately the ‘geniuses’ at KA didn’t identify agitator shaft ‘groove pin’ for this model series...duh?
Sooo download this Repair Parts manual file K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB) for a K45SSW model. The K45SS model and your K5SS model share the same agitator shaft part number, and in this manual Illus. No. 21 identifies the ‘groove pin’ (Part No. 9704677), which is the ‘knob’ part you need to replace.
You will need a punch drive with a smaller diameter than the groove pin, a hammer, steady hands and plenty of patience. Rotate the planetary agitator shaft so that the flush end of the groove pin with the agitator shaft is facing you (the extended part (knob) of the pin – or where it used to be - is facing away from you). Align your punch drive on the end of the groove pin and give it a good whack; repeat until the pin starts to come out the other side of the agitator shaft. Continue tapping until the pin comes completely free. Note the groves on the pin as you will need to orient the replacement groove pin the same way when you place it back on the agitator shaft. Just reverse the process. You’ll want to tap the groove pin home to make sure it’s securely in place. You don’t want it to come loose while mixing.
Here are five potential online vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). You should search for ‘food grade grease’ online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.
Also, for future reference here are links to three excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links are different KA models, but the principles are the same.

Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to completely disassemble, troubleshoot, determine appropriate repair parts and reassemble your mixer to get it working again. Good luck. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

SOURCE: 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.

KitchenAid standmixer (professional 5 pro) makes clunking noise when attachment is in hub.Grinderworm (from food grinder) slips rotation regularly as well.Without attachment everything sounds normal.


Open the gearbox up and look inside, the damage will be obvious once you clean the grease away. You aren't going to fix it from the outside so opening it is going to be part of the solution.

Why is my pasta attachment spinning?


There is a pin on the tapered spindle that fits into a grove in the mixer. If the attachment is not pushed far enough into the mixer housing and screw is not locked down the attachment will spin. It is possable that ihe pin on the attachmen t is sheared off.

I have a Kitchenaid 550 watt 6 qt. stand mixer model #KB26GIXER. I tried to use it this morning and couldn't get the beater blade to lock in place. Isn't there supposed to be a spring and washer...


There is only one pin on the beater shaft to hold the beater in place.
There is no spring or washer on the shaft.

To Attach Flat Beater,Wire Whip, or Spiral Dough Hook, simply
1. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.

2. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.

Whisk attachment is stuck on mixer.


I took a small crowbar, and put the curved end up inside the whisk, and hammered the other end lightly. After about 20 taps, the peg was lined up with the sideways opening so I could twist it off. When I got it off, it looked like there was either flour inside the part where the whisk attaches, or some light corrosion was going on. Either way, I'm going to put a little grease in there so it doesn't happen again.

The motor runs, but but the part where you attach the whisk doesn't turn. We were mixing a fairly heavy dough an it got quite hot. We've tried it since now that is is not hot and it still doesn't work....


One or more of the gears in the transmission have probably stripped. These are repairable, I have repaired mine in the past.

You can find a parts breakdown on www.SearsPartsDirect.com, or other places on the Web.

Disassemble, clean all parts and the casing of grease. Reassemble, including an application of new clean "food safe" grease, or that recommended by KitchenAid.

Kitchenaid Classic -Mixer Head wobbles or shakes back and forth


Lay the mixer on its side and look up through the base. You willnotice a small set screw. This holds the pin tight. If the set screw gets loose the pin willl begin to move out and the head will wobble. Simply tighten the set screw. I just did this to my Kitchenaid mixer 10 minutes ago and it now works fine.
