Question about KitchenAid Food Mixers
This happens when locked. The locking mechanism gives way more with each bounce - I've had this happen before and repaired by the factory.
This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.
If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.
Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.

Yes! It's the "beater to bowl adjustment" trick. I got the KA shipped to my house yesterday and today is the first time to use it. Well, while making the dough, the locking position keeping switching to the unlocking position plus the bouncing beater head looked very scary.
All I did is follow the guide of the "beater to bowl adjustment'. There is a screw right underneath the middle of the beater head. Turning the screw clock-wise makes the beater head lower so the locking knob can be turned further toward the "Lock" position. I let it keep stirring the dough for long enough like15 minutes and never got unlocked this time.
