Hello, W/D here.

I feel your pain!

Here's a link to a site with parts lists and exploded diagrams. (The different diagrams are on the left side of the page. This should be enough to get you what you need. I used this same site to repair mine. I suggest that you make the diagrams full page and then print them, as they will be your "road map" to fix the mixer back to new. You can also take your own digital pictures as you work your way into the mixer so you will have a record of how things are supposed to look. I'd like to also recommend that you mark any wires and terminals that they are removed from with an indelible marker. This will make reassembly much easier also.

When making bread dough the mixer dough hook jammed. now the mixer makes a terrible racket when used and will not mix heavy loads, ie dough.


In the mixer there is a worm drive gear, it is a fail safe so that you don't burn up your motor in just this insatance. the gear is nylon and when the machine is torqued too much the gear is designed to give out or strip. It is making a terrilble racket because all those chewed up teeth are now being milled and ground up while you are trying to use your mixer. STOP!!! the part costs about $8.00 USD and takes about two hours to fix. You should put a new gasget in but a lot of people dont want to spend the extra $6.00 buck because you have to buy new grease for this fix also, about $25.00 more. You must clean out all the old gear grease to make sure all the chewed up gear teeth atre out of the machine, then repair with new worm gear part and then re-pack with grease and add the new gasket and close up the machine all fixed. about 3 hours time $50.00 and a roll or two of paper towels. (The grease is real messy)

I can hear the motor running but the component doesn't turn. This happened when I was trying to make pasta.


There is a good chance that the Worm Gear Follower has been stripped
(i.e. all the teeth on the gear are damaged). Download a copy of the
Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com for your particular model.
Depending on which model you have, it might be an absolute pain
to replace it without the proper knowledge and tools, especially the
Professional 6 Series.

Beaters will not turn, motor runs....


They seem to have a plastic gear built in as protection for overloading (prob). When the machine counters to much resistance that gear will strip its teeth causing the machine to not be able to turn, that it what seems to be the grinding problem. If it is not the plastic gear then it another gear that is "stripped(of its "teeth") I hope your problem is not a severe, but if your mixer is "locked up" then at least you found the problem...

Hope this helped, if it did (or not) please rate, thank you!

It sounds like you have lost some teeth from your worm gear. This usually happens when the mixer has been overloaded. The teeth on the worm gear are designed to fail first to prevent more serious damage. To replace the part you will need to open the head on your mixer. The gears are at the front of the mixer packed in grease. It should be obvious that the worm gear has broken once the head is open. If it is not the worm gear, with the head open it should be easy to spot the problem. The gears are available as spare parts from several places on the internet. search for "kitchenaid worm gear"

When you replace the worm gear, you should be able to see if you need more grease. This will have been the "oil" you saw escaping.

Teeth keep stripping on the Bosch blender.


Is there a lubrication issue? Is there a bind or load to the drive after the gears? What has changed since it worked well? P{ancake batter would not be sufficient load to eat gears. Are you changing speeds under load?
