It appears that retaining ring (7) has snapped. It is the retaining ring which attaches to the drive shaft. Here is the parts diagram:

From it you can see how to remove the case cover and access the gear train. You may have to replace the shaft if its groove is worn allowing the retaining ring to slip off.

I have a kitchen aid mixer moder KP26M1XLC, the planatary keeps falling off the mixer housing. Any suggestions on how to repair


You are going to need to remove the top housing and look inside, there is a circlip on the main planetary shaft that retains the planetary and mixer shaft assembly. You may get away with a new circlip but if the groove that engages the circlip is damaged you'll probably need to fit a new planetary as well.

KP26M1XMR beater shaft falls off


The beater shaft on the 6 quart mixers is part of the planetary assembly. The planetary and center shaft are pressed together, and sometimes they will come apart. The only way to fix this is to replace the planetary or you can have the planetary machine pressed back together.

It is a lot cheaper and less expensive to just replace the planetary. Here is a link to the Planetary Assembly on our website. http://www.mendingshed.com/9708662.html

Kitchenaid mixer leaking oil


Get a copy of the Repair Part List for your model at Kitchenaid.com
Grease inside the Planetary Assembly (the shaft is tight fit to the Planetary
plate at the factory and is not designed to be taken apart, so do not use
any hard object such as a screwdriver to separate them) over times can
turn to liquid and leak down the bowl. Removing the Planetary assembly
and adding Kitchenaid Food Grade Grease is not a task for a novice.
To properly remove the Planetary Assembly, you must work from inside
the Transmission Housing: Remove in this order: Retaining Clip(25), Bevel Gear(21),
Retaining Pin(18), Worm Follower Gear(19). Use a soft mallet to tap out the Shaft
of the Planetary Assembly(15). Re-assemble it in the reverse order.
Note: The Bevel Gear is extremely tightly fit on the shaft, and a pin punch
must be used to remove from the shaft.

The rotating head on the mixer keeps falling off. how do you get it to stay on? it comes off when were mixing.


The Planetary plate comes attached to the shaft from the factory. It is not supposed to get
loose and come apart but it often does due to the mixer's vibrations and the user's constant
attaching and removals of the flat beater, wire whip or dough hook onto the beater shaft.
Try to remove the Planetary plate first : Gently rock it from side to side while pulling on it
to separate from the shaft. Notice the groves on both the shaft and inside the planetary
housing. That is how they are attached to one another at the factory (just friction, no screws
or pins). Now for a permanent solution:
Take a trip to Home Depot or Ace hardware and buy the J-B Industro Weld Compound
(Not the 5 minute type). Mix an equal amount from both tubes (Black and Red). Use a Q-Tip
and apply a thin layer of the mixture on both the shaft (grooved section) and inside the
planetary housing. Now re-attach the planetary plate to the shaft. Use a long strip of duct tape
to hold the plate in place (to prevent it from falling back out). Allow the epoxy to dry overnight
or at least for 8 hours.
The Planetary assembly is now permanently attached to the shaft of the mixer.

Planetary housing fell off


BRUCE, sorry for the initial solution... I had a total brain cramp of what you were describing and after reflecting on your original problem and then seeing your second entry realized what happened. You are absolutely correct that the planetary shaft is press fit onto the planetary housing. For whatever reason, I overlooked that.
I cannot explain why it the housing came of the shaft, but suspect that vibrations during its use caused the fitting to loosen and the planetary housing to fall off.
You have two options. Option #1) Purchase a new planetary assembly that includes the agitator shaft, which will run between $35~$57, plus S&H depending on the vendor or Option #2) try to reattach the planetary housing back onto planetary shaft. (BTW, if you reorder the planetary use the part number from your Parts List manual for your particular color and model, not the 9078036 number you found on the housing)
I suspect the planetary housing’s spline well has already been weakened and there may be micro-cracking which is not clearly evident so the refitting may or may not work. Of course it may be worth trying and fit back together without any problems.
Since it will be difficult to get good mechanical advantage by hitting the planetary housing back onto the planetary shaft while the mixer is upright, you will need to remove the planetary shaft from the transmission housing before you attempt to hammer the shaft back onto the planetary housing.
If you attempt to refit the planetary shaft back to its housing, place the housing on a piece of soft wood to protect the enamel paint before you start to hammer the shaft. Also use a piece of wood on the top of the shaft so you don’t accidentally damage the top of the shaft with your hammer. Good luck. I hope this solution was more helpful than my first one. – hslincoln, Burke, VA -
