Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
Sounds like the gear broke
That's a bit of a task to sort out. If you aren't up for a full strip down and clean up followed by new gears and repack with grease then contact Kitchen Aid for a local repairer. You will be up for a couple of gears and maybe even the top housing if the bush for the accessory drive gear is wrecked. If you need "how to" help then get back to me for step by step.

It just sounds like a broken gear. Easy to fix just time consuming.
In a k45ss I would recommend replacing the three main gears, this would include the Worm & Pinion Gear Assembly part number 240309-2, the bevel pinion center gear, part number 9709627 & the attachment drive gear, part number 9705130. The mixers are not hard to take apart just mostly time consuming.
We have a full service manual on our website that shows step by step how to take apart your mixer, replace parts and reassembly the mixer as well. Here is a link to the service manual:
When you open up the mixer it is usually a good idea to replace the grease (be sure to use non-toxic vegetable grease, KitchenAid recommends a Benelene 930-2 grease) and the gearbox gasket part number 4176597-10.
KitchenAid's are great mixers, and they last a very long time, gears are a common repair in the mixers, and most handy people can repair them by themselves. If you have any questions or need help finding parts feel free to contact us.
