Punched out the roll pin to remove eccentric from spindle, undid 5 screws (after removing trim ring), and removed 4 screws to undo the motor housing. Make sure to keep the one screw with a lock washer in the BACK of the housing. Undid the screw on top to remove the back of the motor housing to take out the strain relief grommet, prior to removing the motor housing. Scraped the excess grease into a tub to re-use. Pulled out the shaft, and lifted out the old (stripped) gear and plopped the new one in. Make sure to mark match points for parts, and put the pins back in in the right order. You have to put the 5 screws back in before sliding the trim ring on, and putting the roll pin back. make sure all gears mesh and test before snugging the motor housing screws. Be sure to orient the strain relief grommet securely, and be careful of the filter plates in the back of the housing (they're brittle). putting the grease back is like frosting a cake. Save a little for the planetary ass'y.

My kitchenaid mixer is at least 37 years old. Everything has worked fine after all these years except the screw cap was flimsy, still stainless steel, but not sturdy. So I tried to replace it , but was told it was too old and couldn't get the part. I contacted Part Select and found a screw cap from newer models fit perfectly and should outlast me and the mixer, it is a lot sturdier than original one. It also arrived in 2 days, which was fantastic. Thanks guys

Mixer suddenly ceased operation after sharp noise

To access the interior of the mixer, I first removed the single screw holding the cup-shaped part at the rear. Then I removed the 4 large screws on the under surface of the mixer head. Next I removed the bright metal ring around the planetary gear area by prying it off. I then pried the dish-shaped part off the shaft using a large-bladed screwdriver. This exposed 5 screws on the circumference of the planetary gear. By removing them, one can pull up the gears and see into the area below. I found the worm gear had fractured. By removing 3 screws at the base I extracted it for closer inspection, checking for any loose pieces. Beware of the jelly-like grease. The replacement part goes into position, and one then follows the steps in reverse.

pinion teeth sheared off the shaft

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.

Went to partselect, found model number, printed blow-up of mixer. Figured out disassenbly procedure. Drove out main pin removing mixer head from stand. Save pin. Drove out pin in mixer main shaft which allowed planetary head to be removed. Save pin.
Removed stainless steel bezel to expose screws for removal of bottom half of mixer body. Removed screws and carefully separated mixer halves using two screwdrivers as prybars. Care must be exercised to prevent chipping of paint on body.
Separated body. cleaned grease from gears to find actual problem. Removed broken geartooth and grease near broken part to make sure no small broken chips remained. Removed pinion shaft assembly, drove pin from gear releasing broken pinion/shaft. Save pin/
Cleaned grease from pinion shaft assembly using mineral spirits and a small brush to reveal how part could be disassembled. Ordered part immediately on-line. Part arrived 1 business day after it was ordered.
Reversed process for replacing pinion shaft. Applied fresh grease obtained from excess already in mixer, spun pinion shaft to make sure grease was properly distributed. Reinstalled pinion shaft assembly. CAREFULLY plugged in mixer and jogged motor to make sure all was free and that mixer worked. If you can repair this mixer, you should have enough sense to do this diagonistic. Keep fingers away from all moving parts, don't touch expposed electric wires. Plug in only after making sure switch is in off position. Jog using mixer switch. Make sure mechanism is free.
Complete re-assembly by following blow-up and reversing disassembly steps. It may be good to write down you disassemblly procedure if it is possible that you won't be reassembling within a day or two.
