Question about Waring DMC201 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Motor housing cap

My unit tipped over and broke the top of one of the motor housings. I didn't think it would be a problem to replace so I took it off (3 screws)
My problem is I've looked high and low for a cap/top to put back on and can't find one!! I've asked 4 top waring parts suppliers and they can't find one.
I went ahead and ordered a new motor housing thinking I could get one that way and have the housing as a spare, but the housing came with NO CAP!! I called Waring direct and they are LOOKING INTO IT, but after a week no results anywhere
Where can I get a cap/top for my motor housing???

I found out from a Waring rep that the motor housing includes the upper and lower units. The company I ordered the housing from didn't include the upper unit. Waring's solution was to return the lower housings and re-order the housing unit from a better company. I haven't heard from the company I ordered it from yet although I've sent them several e-mails.

My solution was simple. I cut the lower units so they'd fit as an upper unit to replace the upper unit

Remove both Brush Holder Caps (34), one on each side of the
Gearcase Motor Housing (1). The Carbon Brushes (29) are keyed
and designed to go into the Housing but only one way. Both must
make contact with the Motor Coils in order for the Motor to turn.
If they are improperly inserted or too worn out (replacement is
required) then your mixer will not run.

If I have to guess, I think that the motor is still fine. Get a Copy of the
Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com.
First thing I would do is to check the two Motor Brushes (one on each
side of the Motor Housing). Make sure they are not worn out, and when
inserted, they must both make contact with the Motor Coils. If even
one of them is not in contact with the coils, the motor will not run.
You can also remove the Motor Housing and visually verify that they
are touching the Coils.

Won't turn on


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
On each side of the Motor Housing(1) is the large black Brush Motor
Cap(23). Each Carbon Brush(19) is keyed (one corner is not square)
and is designed to go into the Motor Housing slot but only one way.
Each Carbon Brush must make contact with the Motor Coils. The
motor will not turn if one or both does not come in contact with the coils.
If the brushes are too worn out, of course they won't touch the coils
neither and your motor will not run. You can purchased new brushes
on Ebay if they need to be replaced.

Don't worry about the Worm Gear for now. You have to make sure that the Motor
is fully functional by itself: Remove the Transmission Housing Cover (4 screws) and
the two screws holding the Motor down. Lift the Motor off the Worm Gear and set it
on the side (be careful of AC voltages from the Motor and Control Assembly).
Select Stir setting and observe the motor shaft. Is the Motor running? If it is,
Select other speeds to see how the motor performs.
With the motor now fully functional, you can now check the Worm Gear Follower
for worn out/broken teeth. Remember the motor drives the Worm Gear, it then in
turn drives the Worm Gear Follower (you may have to remove the grease to see it)
The Bevel Gear sits right on top of the Follower and drives the Attachment Gear.

No power


There are two motor brushes, one on each side of the Motor Housing.
Both must be in contact with the motor coils. If they are too worn out
and/or improperly installed, the motor will not run. Unscrew the black
plastic caps and remove both Brush and Spring Assemblies. Notice
that the brushes are keyed (i.e. one corner is not square) and are
designed to go in the motor housing only one way, in order to make
contact with the motor coils. You can clearly see this if you have the
housing off, whether or not the brushes come in contact with the motor.

The mixing part of mixer not working motor is fine


Hi. Since I can't tell how much you have taken apart, I'll start from the beginning.

Remove the silver band, remove the top cover. At the top front of the mixer locate the transmission housing. If it's plastic, inspect it carefully for cracks around the screws and the body of this housing. If you find cracks, you have found the cheap plastic part that kitchenaid still installs in new mixers, and the cause of your trouble. They know that it's substandard but don't care enough to place a recall notice on this part. It may not please you to know that their replacement part is METAL like the original part should have been. "For the way it's made"! Indeed!

If you intend to repair the mixer yourself, go to kitchenaid's website, enter your model # and locate the parts list for your mixer. Download the drawings, they will assist you with your project.

Be sure to tell kitchenaid what you think of their cheap plastic part.

Thumping Noise Under Duress


Hi. Your problem probably lies in the plastic transmission housing. This cheap piece of plastic has no business in a high priced mixer, as it has two important shafts that depend on the integrity of this housing for their bearing seats

Remove the top cover from the mixer. At the front top of the mixer is the trans. housing. Examine this housing carefully for cracks. If you find cracks, then you have new damage inside the mixer. If, when you replaced the three gears, I suspect that you did not discover the cracks in the trans. housing and reinstalled it after you replaced the gears, or you may have missed internal damage from the first breakdown.

When this cheap plastic part fails, it can destroy the worm gear, it's bearings and the bearing seats and possibly more.

Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Kitchenaid markets these mixers saying it can handle bread dough. The ugly truth is they cannot!

You must open the unit up, remove and save the grease if it's relatively new. You must check every moving part in the mixer's transmission. You have to remove grease from these parts in order to find the damage. When you have the unit repaired, sell it!

I had the same problem with my mixer. I replaced all of the broken parts, and sold it. Since then, I bought a used Hobart N50 ( 5 quart), and an A200 (20 quart) mixers, both of which are commercial mixers. Both of these can handle heavy dough and they do so with ease.

Kitchenaid, to this date, have refused to recall these trans. housings, even though thousands of these cheap plastic housings have failed. Good luck with this saga!

Taking the top off my kitchenaid mixer


Remove the back housing by removing one screw and liftingand pulling rearward.
Remove two screws holding the metalic edge trim. This uncovers the seam. Screws are on the back.
Remove four visible screws from the bottom of the head around and near the pillar.
Now gently using a screw driver, push the metallic ring on the mixing head down and off.
This uncovers five more screws about the mixing head. Remove them.
Using a very small screw driver or punch, puch the pin out of the mixing head shaft.
Remove the mixing head housing.
Lift up on the motor housing to remove it.
The motor/gear housing is the top protion of the mixer. Its loaded with grease so do this over a covered countertop or some place easy to clean. The grease won't run, but it can fall out in gobs.
Make sure all sealing surfaces are clean, especially the gasket around the gears. This will insure a good seal. No gear grease in your famous cookies!
Reinstall in reverse.
