Hi again Libby. You're right to be scared about further damage. If you want to fix this machine yourself, stop using the mixer. Go to the Kitchenaid website and download the drawings that match your mixer model Unplug the mixer! Take a screwdriver and remove the silver band from around the head of the unit ( 1 screw). Next remove the four screws that hold the top part of the mixer. Remove that cover, and look for a 'humpy" looking cover at the front of the machine. Examine this transmission cover carefully. If the cover is made of plastic, look for cracks. If you don't find cracks, you'be better off taking it to a repair shop. If you do find cracks in the plastic cover, remove the four screws that secure it. Remove the trans. cover.
You will now see a lot of grease in this exposed transmission. Put on some latex gloves, get a bunch of paper towels and move some of this grease aside so you can lift the worm gear assembly free of the mixer ( see Kitchenaid drawing). Wipe it off and look for damage to the worm (spiral) gear. Look for damage on the other gear of this assembly, inspect the 2 bronze bearings at either end of the shaft. You're looking for cracks in, or pieces missing from the bearings, look for damaged teeth on the gear. Should you find damage at any stage, that part must be replaced. These parts can be ordered from the Kitchenaid website, and will take about a month for them to arrive.
When you order the required parts, insist that the replacement trans. cover be made of metal. When my mixer "blew up", my replacement was a metal one. If your problem dosen't fit the above solution. I can't help you further. If it does, please rate my solution.
Depending how much grease you had to take out to do the inspection, you might have to order a container of grease to replace it. Good luck! ricardok45.

it is hard to tell you exactly what it could be, but a common problem is after a while the transmission gasket does deteriorate and will begin to leak oil.the gasket is part number4162324. the rattling noise inside your unit is most likely cause by a chipped gear inside, this can happen when the unit is put under heavy loads, such as dough. this problem could get worse as there may be fragments inside that will damage it more.hope this helps

It sounds like you have a stripped gear. I, too, had this problem when my bride dropped a wooden spoon into the bowl. You'll need to disassemble the mixer and determine the part(s) that need to be replaced. With a google search for parts for your model, you can not only locate the exact part, but can also get exploded diagrams for your model. Very handy indeed for disassembly/reassembly. I'd get the diagrams first and then determine the parts needed.
Hope that this helps you.
Best regards, --W/D--
