Question about Food Mixers
Don't mess about with it, excercise your rights and let them sort it out under guarantee. If you mess about with it that will be an excuse for warranty to be denied.

I would first get some canned air. Spray out the area around the Shaft. This is to make sure no harden food is up there. After that is clean spray some cooking spray "PAM"in the Shaft area. This should help. Good Luck

SOURCE: KitchenAid wobbles when mixing
The "wobbling" 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.
Also, leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.
Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.
A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.
It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.

Hi - I've been searching for general info on KitchenAid stand mixers and ran across this so I'm throwing my $.02 in... Since KA stand mixer bases are essentially made of cast metal parts, there is a very slim chance that there is a lateral misalignment (side-side) unless it got dropped...eek! Sounds like a head height adjustment issue. Check out this from KitchenAid Conversations:

It could be very easy. It maybe you have a the brush in the
wrong way round or they have simply run out. They are on the sides under the black plastic caps. Although they will fit in the hole any one of 4 ways
round, there is a key on one corner which means it will only go in one
direction. Use a torch to look into the hole before you put it back in.
They shoud look like this : brush
