  1. I already ordered the latch piece for my moms mixer. Took it apart only to see that the new latch looked like the old one. Watcher your video and BAM, now it's fixed. Thank you so much for posting this.

  2. This is awesome thank you so much! I thought i was either going to have to send it somewhere or buy a new one.

  3. Thank you for posting this! Even if it’s not your usual content, I appreciate it a lot because I have the same problem and found your video!

  4. Thank you, kind sir! This was exactly what I needed, I thought I was going to have to spend a bunch of money to have mine fixed!

  5. Holy shit bud….. exact same mixer. same issue…. same worries….. same resolution!! don't know why I didn't look this up 2 years ago – either way… THANK YOU!!

  6. I think you just saved my mixer. I'm not handy, so when it started to not lock I thought I was destined to have to replace the entire thing. Thank you for taking the time to post.

  7. I had bought a kitchen aid mixer and am in the process of returning it, but I will try this tonight to see if this will fix the mixer not being able to lock.

  8. I just got this kitchen aid and had this issue and I felt like it wasn't getting the stuff on the bottom of the bowl. This solved both of my issues! Thank you!

  9. Thanks so much. I thought it was going to be a costly fix and was going to jerry-rig a system using string.

  10. Thank you sir! I bought mine and it immediately had this issue. Thanks to you and this video I know now that nothing is wrong.

  11. My lock/unlock works fine but the black knob fell off. I ordered a new one from amazon and they sent me a whirlpool item. I will need to replace the entire locking mechinism. I just need the knob to add to the end of the switch. Any suggestions what to do? thank you

  12. If I turn the screw clockwise, it eventually reaches a point where the top part locks down OK. But because that's the same screw that adjusts the gap between the paddle and the bottom of the bowl, the paddle now scrapes the bowl. Turning the screw anticlockwise produces the required gap, but the top no longer locks down. I need both!

  13. Thank you!
    What a great help!

    The only thing is not to screw it fully, otherwise the head starts to shake. Turn the screw by 180 degree and test it, if not solved go for another 180 or 90 degree. After each turning try your mixer and look at head how it behaves.
