I suspect you (speed) Control Plate Assembly has gone bad and needs to be
The good news is that this can be fixed quite easily (OK, maybe with a little effort) by yourself if you are a DITY type person, feel adventurous, and your mixer is not under warranty. However, before you start to disassemble your mixer, be sure you have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case use K45SSW, and select the file listed under Parts List (1), K45SSWH0.pdf (341.41 KB). Check to ensure it matches your mixer model.
Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: Motor And Control Parts, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer’s electrical components, along with all the parts. Find Illus. No. 25, Control Plate Assembly, Part No. 240904-2, which is the part that needs to be replaced.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping.
Here are some links to several excellent websites that detail the disassembling/reassembly of a KA Mixer.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

All of these are great home use units, all the attachments are interchangeable between these. The difference between these mixers is the K5 is a 5 quart mixer and the K45 is a 4.5 quart mixer. As I own both of them they are great in the kitchen and have the same durability.
Have any more questions please post to this thread and I will be happy to assist. Thank you for using FixYa.

had the same problem with mine, and couldn't read the values, so took one out of another mixer that was good. the tested value on the good one was around 107 nano farads. run your mixer without the cap for a short time only, to see if the speed problem is corrected. If slow speeds will work, then you know it to be the capacitor. Do not leave out for long period of time, you will burn out contacts and poss. outher components

I just fixed my 8 yo mixer! Would only work at highest speeds... first took it apart because it was making a terrible noise. Tthrough this site I figured out how to take it apart and replace the grease. Gears were in good shape, but a small nut fell out of the back while I was working on it. Finished putting it back together, found the spot where the nut belonged- holding the metal housing of the motor to the head. I turned it on and all I could get were the two highest speeds so I took the back panel off again and played with the bottom screw- it seems to adjust something on the wire that controls the speed. So take a philips screwdriver and adjust that screw and see if you get all the speeds back.
