    I have the same problem. My stand mixer is a year old. Now suddenly the wire whip is stuck and can't remove it to wash. It still works but I have to clean it without pulling out the wire beater, which is very inconvenient.

I took the advice from: http://forum.kitchenaid.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=6356
I put a wash cloth in a pot of boiling water and used tongs to wrap it around the beater shaft while the mixer was resting on its side. When the wash cloth was not too hot to touch, I put it back in the boiling water and did it again. I was then able to easily remove the beater.

I would suspect that it has become stuck on the shaft. It depends on what is sticking to what you should use. If it is some sort of food, then soaking it for a while (20-30 mins) with fantastic would loosen it. If its seems to be dry welded, then I'd use something more like liquid wrench (automotive section). Just remember that the locking mechanism requires that you push the beater up, then turn, then pull. so look at the exposed portoin of the beater and see if you can tell what part of the j-channel the pin is located will tell you which way it needs to be moved. I would be not afraid to tap it will a soft mallet (wood or plastic) but not with anything too hard (steel).

The problem I had was the small pin that sticks out from the shaft. It seems a fraction too long and was preventing the beater turning so that the pin slides into the grove where the beater would move down. I tried hot water, oil, WD40 ... all many many times. In the end, out of frustration. I wrapped the beater in a wet (for extra friction) tea towel and bashed it with my heaviest rolling pin. It took a dozen REALLY heavy whacks (I'm 120+kg) and eventually came loose. A small chip of metal from inside the beater where it touches the pin fell out. This is an obvious design fault. I filed down the pin... just a little... and now all my attachments slide on and off easily. Lastly I turned the mixer on and it's working... Phew!

Beater is stuck

I had this happen on my Kitchen Aid mixer. There is probably a build up of dough/cake mix etc inside the hole where the beater fits into. Fill a mixing bowl or a jug deep enough to fit over beater with very hot or boiling water. Immerse the stuck beater in the water up to where it connects in to the mixer and hold for about minute. Once the hot water has melted the build up you should be able to remove the beater. Hopefully this may work on your brand of mixer.

One of my blades is stuck and I can't engage the release

Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft
easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.
If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet
(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved
up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily
turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.

From Kitchenaid Manual:
To Attach Flat Beater, Wire Whip, or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward
as far as possible.
5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.
6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

To Remove Flat Beater, Wire Whip or Dough Hook

I have a Sunbeam Mixmaster from mthe 1970s,

If this mixer sits on a stand, first remove it from the stand. Turn it upside down and shine a flashlight into the right side socket to look for obstructions. When you say you swivel the head, do you mean you rotate the handle? This is how to eject the beaters after use. It may be that the ejector on the right side is stuck. If so, you will need someone with mechanical skills to disassemble & repair.

I need replacement beaters for an old GE hand mixer.

I bought an old GM mixer no. 30M47 with no beaters yesterday at the Salvation Army store. The beaters I have for a newish (ugly) GE hand held beater fit perfectly. I suggest taking your old beater to a store that sells new GE handheld beaters and seeing if the new beaters fit. If anyone reads this and wants me to look up the number of the new ugly beater for them, please say so before I take it to the Salvation Army.. : )
