it sounds like you may have a sheared key on one of the shafts.with no product in the mixer will it run in any other speeds?when mixing pizza dough you should only use 1st gear.if it does run in other speeds you have a sheared key or broken shaft,if it doesnt run in any speeds drop the planetary and check the key on that shaft.

Had the same problem with dough hook not coming off. Sent to a Viking dealer in Rockford and was quoted $600. to replace gear box. Took it back without repairs and call Viking listed in manual and sent it to them on a Monday and by Friday had it back fixed and no charge.DM

SOURCE: dough hook
if you r using it for dough use the roller and scraper it works much better. But if u want to use the dough hook the holes in the middle is where the knob and stick in the arm go into to hold the hook inplace and it also goes in the hole on the side near the scraper hope this helps

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:

You probably can--but you might have to contact the manufacturer. Most retail stores will not sell parts like this (and if they do, it's probably a store that will be something like a kitchen specialty store--aka, a little more pricey), so the best way to go is to contact them directly so that they can get it for you (and, a lot of times, they can get it for you at a cheaper price, or, if you're under warranty, and the beaters/dough hooks have broken, sometimes for FREE!!).
Their contact number should be either stamped somewhere on the mixer (usually on the bottom--might be stamped directly into the plastic, so make sure you have it in really good light when trying to read) or in the product manual (usually near the back of the book). If you still can't find it, you can usually just do a quick internet search (just typing in the manufacturer name--in this case, "Hamilton Beach"--and then "support" into Google usually helps).
Good luck! :)
