The blade will be stuck on the shaft and both will be damaged and require replacement. With that knowledge you now understand that drilling a hole sideways through the blade cap isn't wrecking anything you are going to use again. You can then get something into the hole for leverage. Here in NZ blades are under $20 and motor shaft sleeve is about $5. If you don't replace the parts it will happen again.

Remove bowl completely. Turn motor on and use something plastic to push in the little white button in that is just above the button control panel and normally hidden by the bowl base. If it goes then the problem will be either the working bowl or the lid. There are mechanisms in both that activate that micro switch, they can wear or break. Good luck figuring out which one it is as they are both as likely to be the faulty one.

I got the lid off by using a turkey-skewer (i.e., a long pin) to push down on the long white plastic piece, in the handle, just above the spring.
When you push it down far enough, you can twist the cover back over to the proper side.
(We think we created this situation ourselves by mistakenly twisting the cover into place clockwise, rather than counter-clockwise.)

With the bowl off activate the safety switch and turn the machine on. If it runs you have a problem with the mechanisms in the lid or bowl that operate the safety switch.

Get in touch with Kitchen Aid, that should not be happening.

The motor shaft sleeve and spindle will need to be replaced, once this jamming has happened it becomes ongoing if you do not replace those inexpensive parts. You need to wrap some webbing tightly around the spindle attach the other end to something very solid (like a fence post) and then accelerate the motor part rapidly away from the post. Hold onto the motor very firmly or it will land on the ground.The webbing tightens instantly when it runs out of slack and the spindle will come off. Then you need to remove the motor shaft sleeve in a similar manner, I drill a hole in the end and use a shackle and chain attached to the post for that one. I use the leg of my workshop bench, most folks will not have a solid heavy bench like mine. If that sounds too hard just take it to your local K/A service agent, they will have done it many times.

Take it in and get it fixed, a Kitchen Aid service person will have done plenty. Once you get it off that's not the end of it, there will be damage that will only cause it to happen again. New motor shaft sleeve and the piece that's stuck. Here in NZ they are not worth much so it's never an expensive job to do it properly.

You just have to force it out, there is no magic. Sit down, put the lid between your knees and thump it out with the handle end of a hammer.

Dough is normally water soluble. Try soaking it in water for a several days up to a week. Then try prying it loose.
