Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers
Is there a piece that holds this housing in place that needs to be tighted or does the whole piece need to be replaced?
Properly having a look to find the cause is going to involve removing the planetary (remove chrome drip ring and knock out the pin) and then removing the back cover. Remove the white and the black wires from the speed control and take the return spring off the bottom of it. Undo the 9 screws holding the gear cases together and separate the 2 halves. You will now be able to inspect the shaft, spacing washer pins and gears on the planetary driving shaft. Normally they have a bit if movement up and down in the planetary (when it is fully assembled) I've never found a fault within the gearbox to cause it or if I have it's been through someone pulling it apart and not assembling it correctly. When I do them I add an extra fibre washer on the outside between the planetary and gearbox housing, there should already be one there, I add another of suitable thickness to remove play but not make it tight.

Turn screw (A) SLIGHTLY counter clockwise (left) to raise the flat
beater or clockwise (right) to lower the flat beater
2. Check the Beater Shaft (Agitator Shaft) making sure the Retaining ring
is flushed with the surface of the Planetary Assembly
Constant Pulling and Removal of the beaters can cause the Agitator shaft to move
3. If the above two still don't solve your problem, follow the service manual
directions to disassemble the Planetary Assembly and check for loose screws
