Try adjusting the height of the head by turning screw #36 counterclockwise a turn or so. This will raise the mixing head so the beaters no longer hit the bottom of the bowl. Refer to parts list:

If the pivot pin #18 is not centered and secured then center the pin and turn the mixer on its side to tighten screw #31 from underneath the mixer to secure the pivot pin.

    Mine has the droopy head, I tried playing with the screws with no results. Sadly the link above seems to be dead.

    The link worked. Mine is a KSM90, but the information and diagram allowed me to find the right screw anmd it did the trick.

You have put the "chalk thing" back in incorrectly, it only fits one way, use a torch and look in the hole and line the missing corner on the "chalk thing" up with the blocker.

I have a Kitchenaid Artisan stand mixer and the head is loose. When in the down, locked position, I can move it up and down by probably an inch. I've been into shops and tried to do the same with


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.

Till the top back and look into hinge area. You will see a large set screw that controls how far the head drops. Try turning the screw counter clockwise 1/8 of a turn.

Cant adjust flat beater so it wont hit the bowl,when trying to the head of the mixer is too loose


all tilt head mixers pivot on a pin which goes thru the head and the base. This pin is held in in place with a screw which you can access from underneath the base. Try tightening the screw and see if that tightens up the the loose head.

If the looseness is in the gear head then the five screws which hold the top and bottom halves of the gearcase together. Remove the chrome ring by gently prying it off, then drive the pin out which goes thru the planetary housing and the shaft and drop the planetary housing to access the 5 (item 19) screws.

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 motor is loose a little and needs adjusting up, because it hits the bowl when in motion.


I think from your description that the the head connecting to the base shaft needs tightening. Put the mixer on it's side UNPLUGGED. 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. If after tightening it stops rocking but it still hits the bowl there's another screw at the front, on top of the neck under the head. Turn this until it clears the bowl. Good luck!

KitchenAid 2671 Mixer always wiggling


I have had the same problem to remove the motor you need to remove the two screws at the back of the motor next the two screws holding on the circuit board (so you can get at the screws around the gearbox ) next remove the cover on the gearbox by removing the four screws and lift off after you have done this you can lift the motor out but remember you still have the wires connected but you can get at the screws to tighten the head down try using lock-tight on the screws

Kitchenaid Classic -Mixer Head wobbles or shakes back and forth


Lay the mixer on its side and look up through the base. You willnotice a small set screw. This holds the pin tight. If the set screw gets loose the pin willl begin to move out and the head will wobble. Simply tighten the set screw. I just did this to my Kitchenaid mixer 10 minutes ago and it now works fine.

Kitchenaid Mixer head wobbles bad


The solution provided by luannej is useful only if your mixing attachment is striking the surface of the bowl. By adjusting the screw located at the junction of the head and base, you are actually controlling how far the head is allowed to tilt forward and, thus, the height of the attachment above the bottom of the bowl. Although the attachment striking the bottom of the bowl will lead to wobble (and noise!), it isn't usually the root cause of the wobble. In fact, the wobble may be causing the bowl strikes and adjusting the head height only hides the problem.

The head of the mixer is secured to the base by a large steel pin. Any play between the head and base comes from this hinge and its resulting tolerances. To "tighten" the sloppy tolerances causing your wobble, follow these steps: 1) Lock the mixer's head down and turn the entire mixer upside down. 2) Looking deep into the hollow base, find the small slotted set screw. This screw actually presses against the pin and takes up the slop between the head and pin. Note that this screw is not the large slotted screw I mentioned earlier visible when you tilt the head back. 3)Tighten the small set screw as much as you can. Your wobble should be greatly reduced or eliminated now. 4) Lastly, you may want to readjust the large screw controlling the head's tilt to optimize the distance between attachment and bowl. Hope this helps.
