Repair went well after I figured out how to dis-assemble the mixer. Used straight & phillips screwdrivers and a small hammer & punch to drive out 3 pins. Ordered part# PS734233 pinion & shaft as shown in the parts page, it arrived on schedule, received part # 240210-2. Only problem was the new pinion had 10 teeth, the old/failed pinion had 11 teeth. Could not learn from anyone I called at PartsSelect or Whirlpool if the 10 tooth pinion was the correct part to use.
The teeth appeared to mesh with the mating gear,
installed the new pinion, reassembled and it worked fine. Not sure if it made a noticable difference in the output shaft speed.
