The housing has to be worn if the bearing has play. Try a little tape around the bearing, or some thin brass shim stock. Of course epoxy may be a solution, if applied around the i.d. of the bearing seat. A little shortning on the bearing will keep it from sticking to the epoxy.

It would be helpful to get the model number and serial number off of the bottom of the mixer. This will help determine if the gearing has changed at all.

Usually when a mixer is making a lot of noise after replacing the gears we can find a small nick or gouge in the gear. even the smallest damage can cause these mixers to make a lot of noise. Also if you have an older mixer there was a change in the worm gear from 53 teeth to 60 teeth on the gear. If your mixer originally took a 53 tooth gear, and you replaced it with the 60 tooth gear it will make a lot of noise like you are describing.

So first check your serial number, if the first 4 digits are after WL45 your mixer would have a 60 tooth gear, however if it is a WL44 or before you would have originally had a 53 tooth gear and this is what is causing the loud noise.

If your mixer is new enough that it took the 60 tooth gear, then take the mixer apart, clean and remove all gears, clean them off with wd-40 and inspect closely, even the smallest chip can cause a ton of noise.

If you have any questions, or you cannot find the problem feel free to contact us at The Mending Shed.

You can adjust the mixer bowl up and down slightly. If you lower your bowl and look at the back you will see a little screw, it looks like a flat head screw and it is on the "neck" of the mixer.
You can raise and lower the bowl by adjusting this cam screw. You can tell that your bowl is adjust correctly by attaching the flat beater and put a dime in the bottom of the bowl, the beater should just barely touch the dime and move it around the bottom of the bowl.

The beater will not scrape the sides of the bowl, if you are wanting the sides of the bowl scraped I would recommend the Flex Edge Beater made by KitchenAid which is basically a flat beater with a rubberized edge which will scrape the side of the bowl as it rotates.

Here is a link to the flex edge beater on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/kfe6l.html
Let me know if you have any other questions.

The clicking is probably a small nick in one of the gears, even the smallest chip can cause alot of noise or make the mixer click. Is the beater shaft still turning when you have a load in the mixer (bowl is full)
Or is it just clicking?

If the beater stops turning it is going to be caused by stripped gears, however if it is just clicking this would indicate just a nick in the gear. Either way I would recommend opening the mixer and replacing the damaged gear/gears.

Your mixer is considered a 5 Quart Professional, which means it has the same parts as a KitchenAid 6 quart mixer. The first thing you will want to do is take the mixer apart and disassemble the gearing. You will want to clean off the gears with paper towels and wd-40. Carefully inspect each gear once clean and replace damaged gears.

In the professional mixers when a gear strips you need to replace the grease and housing gasket, this is because the gears are all metal and there may be metal shavings in the grease which could cause the gears to strip again.

The most common gear to go bad in the Professional series mixers is the Worm Follower Gear (9706529). Here is a link to that gear on our website: http://www.mendingshed.com/wormfollower.html

Also, here is a link to the service manual for the mixer, this will aid you in taking the mixer apart and putting it back together correctly. http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

what do you mean by "slip"
the blades quit turning?
or slow down?
or lose power?
or out of alignment?
in other words how do you know they are "slipping"?

Worn carbon motor brushes typically cause motor sparking when you're running the mixer. Unplug the stand mixer and examine the motor brushes for wear. To remove a motor brush, use a screwdriver to unscrew the motor brush cap. Pull the cap and the carbon brush out.
