NOTE: This part has been upgraded from plastic to metal housing. Gasket is no longer available separately.
***Used with Stand Mixers.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
First I removed the screws that hold the silver band and the top of the mixer (cover). I removed the cover. I then removed the 4 screws that hold the gear housing and removed the housing. I removed the worm gear and removed the bearings and the washer from the "old" worm gear and put them on the replacement worm gear. I took gear grease from the cracked housing and packed the replacement gear with this grease. I attached the gasket to the replacement housing. I placed the attachment gear into the replacement housing and placed the housing over the gear assembly. I then put the mixer back together and ran it for a few minutes to dispurse the gear grease. I just mixed up some bread dough and everything seems to be in working order. I have never done this before so I hope it will continue to function properly.

Very happy to find that the new gear housing was metal, not plastic. The whole problem was poor design of plastic to hold metal gears. Removed housing held down by four screws, removed two gears that were damaged. Retaining ring was difficult to remove from retaining slot. New gears replaced the old ones, new retaining ring put in place, new grease packed into all gearing, new stronger metal housing put in place and the Kitchenaid industrial mixer is better than new. Very happy with the parts I purchased.
sat on the kitchen table and with a screwdriver started to disasemble the mixer,hardest part was taking snap ring off (easy after you buy snap ring pliers)as gears were lifted off noticeable wearing was present on all parts. the bearing housing on the gearcase was broken lose, the only major expense. the other parts are not expensive so i decided to renew all parts. glad i did felt proud of myself when job was done. would do it again Joe
The parts I received from PartSelect were higher quality than the original parts. The bevel gear and housing were originally plastic. The new ones are solid metal. The machine sounds and runs better than it ever did. The drawings from the website made this really easy. This will be my first choise for parts from now on.
This was easy once Igot all the parts. The mxer wouldn't mix and when I opened it up the drive gear between the motor and the planetary drive was missing some teeth. Turns out the bearing, which was sintered bronze, had broken so I needed a new gear, new bearing, and the jumping gear had broken the housing so I needed a new housing. The new gearing ( really a bushing since there are no rollers or balls in the "bearing") waws now steel and the molded plastic housing is now cast metal. Some new grease ( I had to buy a quart can of grease to get two tablespooons) a new gasket and put the screws in and we're back in business. Total repair time 10 minutes, total time to get all the parts 3 weeks,
Easy ; remove belt ( 1 screw ) remove cover , and there is the complete drive . I still need the top plastic cover which is cracked and broken where the bolts go through . Please quote this part .Conradt
I am VERY impressed With this site . I am very disappointed with Kitchenaid. I paid more for this mixer than I paid for my first car especially when you ad in the attachments. I was mixing dough when I saw what looked like Small metal shavings in the dough... Then I heard a clacking sound so I turned off the machine and cussed...I got the screw driver and took off the top and was really surprised that on a machine that retails for over $550.00 dollars that the gear housing is PLASTIC...And this one had a crack down the side... So I took my trusty Phillips #2 and removed the housing to see that the front Bearing was broken as well so I got on line to kitchenaid and they are determined to continue the process of Shafting you and I with the prices of thier made to fail (Quickly) parts and lubricants.. Thank God for PartSelect. I got a better housing for half the money as well as a Bearing. Now I wish this were the end but remember I said that there was metal shavings in my dough? Well since I was going to have to replace the lube anyway I took apart the planetary gear as well and found that it had been shaving metal from the underside of the upper main housing .. After cleaning I checked and the lower bushing wasn't seated so it had been doing this since I bought it and I didn't know.. So I got a C Clamp and pressed it to where the thing should have been to begin with. If you are going to be working on the thing I suggest you tear it down completely and clean It thoroughly and inspect EVERYTHING closely... I have been eating metal shavings for who knows how long...
