Hi. If your mixer is under warranty, call Kitchenaid. They are very good at replacing mixers under warranty.
If you are out of warranty, this is where the fun begins, NOT!
Remove the silver band from around the top of mixer. Remove 4 screws that secure the top cover, remove cover and at the front top of the machine locate the transmission cover. Inspect this cover carefully for cracks. If you find cracks in it...You have just discovered Kitchenaid's dirty little secret. A cheap plastic transmission housing! The failure of this cheap part is the cause of all of the rest of the damage inside the mixer, which may include a destroyed worm gear and shaft, destroyed bearings and their seats. You're not alone. I estimate that thousands of these plastic parts have failed causing great damage to the rest of the mixer
Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made out of metal. If you feel up to the task of repairing the mixer yourself goto the Kitchenaid website and do a search for the parts catalog for your mixer model, these will assist you with disassembly, reassembly and parts ordering.
If you're not up to the task, take it to an authorized repair place once you have put the cover back on.
Even if you're out of warranty, you may be able to have Kitchenaid pay for the replacement parts, they did for my mixer. Be persistent with them and try to get to a manager with your complaint. This cheap piece of plastic has no business being installed on a high-priced machine.

SOURCE: Grinding Noise
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.

SOURCE: KitchenAid 600, Stand Mixer -
If the beater is grinding when it meets resistance, it generally indicates that an internal gear has broken or been stripped.
With the Professional 600 stand mixer, up to 14 cups of white flour or only 8 cups of any flour are recommended at one time. Speed 2 is the only speed that should be used for bread dough and it should never be kneaded for longer than 7 minutes. Failure to do any of these things make cause problems for the mixer motor.
If you are interested in self-repair, I recommend mendingshed.com. They have internal parts available to order and also have a .pdf file for the Kitchenaid Mixer Service Manual.

Also, if the mixer is less than a year old, Kitchenaid may replace it under their 1 Year Manufacturer's Warranty. I would recommend calling their customer service. Their toll-free telephone number is:

buy a new mixer unless you are able to replace the motor because it is most likely burnt up because we have gone through 6 mixers and the motor slows down and eventually stops and just buzzes
