If you have also tightened up the screw that you can see from the front in the middle where the hinge pivots when head us up then that's where your problem is. That is the head height adjustment and is to set the flat paddle to just clear the bowl when the head is down.

SOURCE: the locking pin on the

I had the same issue. I just finished tearing mine apart only to find that the lock just wasn't engaging with a slot in the base of the mixer. Try lifting up the head of the mixer to expose the height adjust screw in the hinge between the base and the head. By tightening mine down a couple of turns, the lock can engage the slot again and the lock works. You may have to do a little tweaking to find the right balance between height adjustment and latch functionality, but at least you won't have to tear your mixer apart like I did!

It could be very easy. It maybe you have a the brush in the wrong way round or they have simply run out. They are on the sides under the black plastic caps. Although they will fit in the hole any one of 4 ways round, there is a key on one corner which means it will only go in one direction. Use a torch to look into the hole before you put it back in.
They shoud look like this : brush

SOURCE: mixer head loose

Referring to the diagram on:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10157992.pdf

Remove the screw, item 22, to remove the trim band around the mixer. This will reveal 4 screws which hold the top cover on. Remove the screws and lift the top off. Find all the screws which hold the gearhead in place and tighten them all. If you want to make the fix a permanent one put some thread-loc compound on each screw and tighten it.

the solution to this is to tighten the screw visible through the base that intersects the pin. Turn the machine upside down and using a long flat screwdriver tighten the screw.

How to tighten kitchenaid mixer motor head locking lever?


Adjust the head height first, flat paddle should just clear the bowl. Te head height adjustment can be seen in by the hinge looking from the front when the head is raised. Screw in (clockwise) to lower and out to raise. You cannot get the head lock right when head height is miles out

Motor head on Kitchen Aid KSM150PSWW is loose when in operation.


Are you engaging the head lock during operation? if not that is why it is loose. If you are it is not uncommon for the head to move around a little under heavy loads, when I make bread the head is always trying to come up so I have to use the head lock switch whenever I use the mixer on bread. It is the only time I lock it down.

Kitchen aid artisan mixer is loose and shaking


This could be the pivot rod between the head and the column being loose and out of place. Or it could be the hook activated by the lock lever not engaging properly. See the following Service Manual:

Tighten this screw to fix your problem.

Mixer head is loose beater scrapes bottom of bowl makes loud thumping noise


I assume you mean that the top half of the mixer, above the pivot pin, moves with respect to the lower half of the mixer, the stand part. There is a pin on which the top half pivots which becomes loose.

Turn the mixer over and look up where the pin goes through the two pieces. There is a screw there which secures the pin. Tap the pin into position and tighten the screw.

I have to physically hold my Artisan mixer in place or it will go off the counter, even at low speeds. Seems to rotate fine as long as the head isn't down with an attachment on and in the bowl.


I think from your description that the the head connecting to the base shaft needs tightening. Put the mixer on it's side. Look up inside the base and you'll see a small set screw.
With a flat blade screw driver tighten that screw and it should stop moving. If it doesn't you probably need another shaft because it's worn.

Mixer switch is locked


If this is a 325 watt Artisan, there is no safety switch I know of unless its in the circuit board. Your mixer is broke.
