My mixer stopped working. Nothing happened, just went to use it one day and it wouldn't turn on. What could the problem be?

The problem could be anywhere and it should be checked through by a competent person using test equipment.

There is a slightly higher chance the power cord has an internal break but other common problems are with the internal safety device, the speed control, the switch or the motor brush gear.

Mixer does not turn on.

Still have the problem with this mixer not turning on? LEt me know if you have checked the breaker and the cord (Check for a loose or disconnected plug end -- Should have the 3 Prong ground attached. This is often the case, but then the 2nd problem is that one of the SAFETY Switches is not engaged, not allowing the mixer to be turned on -- it's a matter of checking each of these symptoms systematically to know for sure. Let me know if I can help.

Stop working, I just brought it on 1 month ago.

You have to trace from the power cord to the motor the supply .You will need to see where the problem is to cut power .

it can be a reset switch( if available in the unit), the main switch control.
if not it can be the motor, make sure the bowl locks well to latch the safety switch as some models the motor wont spin otherwise.

Won't start

You would need the bowl guard (have a magnet #13 p 4) to engage with the reed switch (#54 p8) in order to activate the motor circuit. Is it a safety feature. I would not recommend to bypass it.

The beaters won't go around. The motor is running

I can't solve this problem, but mine just died doing the very same thing. Motor is running, the revolving base is turning, and the beaters are just sitting there. Ruined an entire batch of divinity!

Will not spin dry

If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.

  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

Pastry Chef said mixer will not start.

Depending on what you were mixing for 1/2 hour, you could have overheated & burned out the motor.

Mixer will not run.

Jeff, odds are that it's the circuit board. I've never heard of a motor burning out after just one use. Go to and look under kitchenaid mixer problems. You'll find it less hard to believe that this can happen to a relatively new mixer. Welcome to the land of kitchenaid (Whirlpool Corp.) users. By the way, be prepared to wait at least a month for parts delivery. Things have changed greatly since Hobart sold the kitchenaid line. If you found this solution usefull, please rate it. Good luck. ricardok45
