Question about KitchenAid K45SS Classic Stand Mixer
There are lots of places to be looking, first thing I would look at would be under the rear cover to make sure the two nuts that hold the rear motor bearing housing in place are nipped up. You don't wring the neck on these nuts, if you over tighten them you will deform the rear bearing housing.
If you can find someone local who has been doing these mixers for a while they will be able to give it a once over. It's unlikely to be expensive. Best people to ask is Kitchen Aid, they should know who does their warranty work in your area. If you are in new Zealand it will be me.

If it's metallic sound you are loosing teeth on a gear or two. This is caused by lack of lubricant or simply fatigue of the material of the gears. Don't use it, you can get metal flakes in your food.
Take it in to a repair shop and have it fixed. The money spent is well worth it because if done correctly will last another 12 years.

This is not a solution but I think you have a serious problem you might have sheared some gear teeth whent the mixer jammed and it only manifests itself under a heavy load, I would take it to a repair guy, those mixers are expensive and it would be worth it.

Your mixer is easily able to handle the kneading of bread dough. Please advise:
9 cups of all purpose white flour, maximum.
6 cups of specialty flour, maximum. This is any flour besides all purpose white.
Bread doughs are only to be needed on speed 2, and never for longer than 7 minutes.
This is all stated in the Use and Care guide for the mixer itself. If these guidelines are not followed, it may lead to a product failure.

Hi BESTATTI2UD. Your KA mixer’s internal gears are factory packed with enough grease to last a lifetime, whatever that means? Depending on the age of your mixer (7 years), where it was stored and how heavily it’s been used; these factors all will eventually cause the grease’s base oil to separate from its additives, with the resultant oil seeping from openings beyond the gasket down the agitator shaft, which is the situation you are experiencing now with your mixer. Gravity can be very insidious. To answer your primary question after 7 years it’s time for some TLC maintenance on you mixer, and yes, you can fix this yourself at home.
The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use KSM150P, and select this file, KSM150PSWH0.pdf (773.44 KB), under Parts List (61) (check to see it matches your mixer model).
Turn to pages 4 & 5, titled: Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. You may want to order Part #19, transmission case gasket, and some food-grade grease for starters. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but very gratifying.
When you re-grease your transmission I recommend using a food-grade grease that you can order online (although I’ve seen automotive bearing grease used too – your call). As far as parts go, here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com. You should be search for ‘food grade grease’ if you start digging into the transmission. Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Finally, here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers are different models than yours, but the principles are the same.
