Hi RFRICK753, There are no specific instructions to 'oil' your KA mixer. Your KA mixer's internal gears are factory packed with enough grease to last, with normal use, pretty much a lifetime. As grease will, over time, tend to break down, you may find the oil component of it seeping from openings beyond the gasket and "O"-ring down the agitator shaft. Gravity can be very insidious. But generally speaking if your mixer appears to be operating normally as it has in the past, you should not be overly concerned about 'oiling' it.

If, however, you feel it necessary to perform some TLC on your mixer, the good news is that the inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.

Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals& Guides> then enter the visitor type "Consumer" and enter the 6 character model number, in this case KSM90P, and select any file under Parts List (16); say KSM90PSAC0.pdf (354.08 KB) for example (all 16 manuals are exactly the same, but it's still wise to check and see if it matches your mixer, though).

Although not providing step by step instructions, the Parts List manual provides an exploded view of the various component assemblies allowing you to see how the mixer all fits together. It is helpful for the disassembly, troubleshooting, and reassembly of your mixer.

You'll find it quite messy 'under the hood' in the transmission box, but you'll be able to ascertain whether you really need to re-grease or not. Also, while your mixer's apart is an opportunity to check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc.

After getting your hands this dirty, you may want to order a transmission gasket, an "O"-ring, along with some food-grade grease. Here are five potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com; and Grainger.com (for grease). Prices can vary widely between vendors, so do some comparison shopping.

Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/greasing and reassembly of a KA Mixer. The mixers displayed in the links may be different than your KA model, but the principles are the same.

Between these three websites and their excellent pictures and descriptions and your Parts List manual, you should now be able to peek under the hood and assess any maintenance needs for your mixer.
