Question about KitchenAid Kitchen Aid K45SSWH Classic Tilt-Head Stand Mixer
They do not use oil at all, they use food grade grease. Any oil that is dripping out is the liquids separating out from the solids in the grease. You either need to open it up and stir the grease u again or remove the old grease completely and repack it with new stuff.

First off -- if it's still under warrantee, you'll want to go to kitchenaid.com and find the nearest service center. The next thing I say starts with "void the warrantee" steps. :)
It's very simple to open a stand mixer to see if you've got a simple problem or a bad one.
Follow the aluminum "Kitchen Aid" band to the back of the unit, there's one main screw. Remove this, and set it aside with the band which should come right off at this point.
Now, there should be two screws on each side of the unit where the band used to be. Remove each of these. They're all identical, so no worries if you mix them up.
Now you can lift the top off of the unit and see inside. The motor is at the back of the unit, the gear box at the front is where the oil is coming from. Try (GENTLY) to tighten the screws that hold the gearbox together. With a little luck, the gearbox screws had come loose and it was oozing oil out through the seals. If they're all firm, then you've got more serious problems and you'll want to find a service center for it.

Called the Kitchenaid toll free number and found a local authorized repair center. Not a fixya solution, but at least a solution.

You can see that there are 5 screws holding the upper and lower gearcase together. They pinch the gasket number 26 together and prevent the oil and grease from leaking. Remove the chrome ring by prying gently around the ring. You will see the 5 screw heads. Tighten them and the leaking will stop.
If it still leaks then you may have to replace the fiber washers number 29 which will involve disassembling the lower gear case.
