worm gear stripped
Looked for the probable cause from a U-tube video, then found the parts list and repair video on the PartSelect website. When the parts arrived within 3days the shipped email had a video on exactly how to complete the repair. Repair video was very well done and easy to follow.

stripped worm gear
i disassembled the mixer until i could remove the worm gear; is in a housing that that includes another gear and shaft. make sure you have a magnetic tray to put parts in as you work or you will spend more time looking for parts than reassembling the mixer. once you have the gear housing out you will need a small diameter punch to drive out the pin that holds the gears in the housing(i used a 5/32 transfer punch.) make sure you punch the pin out where it will be caught or you will need to order that part because you will not find it. after knocking the pin out it is just a matter of removing the old gear, putting the new one in, and reversing the steps and getting everything reassembled.

Worm gear was stripped and needed to be replaced
I am not handy, but was able to follow this YouTube video and do this repair easily and successfully: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QsgPIL9FpA

I did take the mixer apart first to verify that the worm gear was the issue, then ordered the part from you site. I received it quickly and was able to do the repair and get back to mixing in a few days!

Plastic worm gear gave way (as designed) when the grain mill over-worked it.
I did exactly what the PartSelect video demonstrated after watching other DIY videos on the Internet, thus I did not remove the stand which seemed like a little too much for a simple straight forward repair. This is the second time I have replaced this gear. The first time was about 10 years ago when the bakelite gear broke on a 30 year old KitchenAid K
-45. That mixer made hundreds of loaves of bread after grinding many pounds of wheat berries. The only reason we had to replace it was that it walked off the flour dusted counter and landed on its head when my wife had her back turned. Otherwise we would still be using it. :-)
Thanks for the excellent service and instructions.

No rotation on mixer
You tube has great instructions! I would suggest when you buy a part to let customer know that they need a food grade gear grease ordered to complete the reinstall of all gears and body parts!

I am replacing the worm gear in my kitchen aid mixer. The grease is full of shredded nylon so I think I need to replace the grease. Is there any particular weight or composition grease I should use. Any grease that I should avoid using?
For model number K5SSDWH
