Cleaning - Juicer and Sauce Attachment

Cleaning the KitchenAid Juicer


  • You should be able to juice 10-20 lbs of fruits and vegetables without cleaning (emptying of excess pulp) being necessary.
  • Under normal usage conditions, when the pulp chute is pushed in for juicing, the pulp will be pushed out of the juicer and allow the unit to continue running.
  • Make sure the rubber gasket is in place and that the pulp chute is pushed in all the way to allow for as much pulp as possible to be pushed out of the juicer.


  • Do not take the drip stop valve apart for cleaning.
  • It is recommended to clean the unit as one piece.

IMPORTANT: To avoid damaging the juicer, do not wash or immerse the drive assembly in water or other liquids. All other parts are top-rack dishwasher safe.

  1. To disassemble: Remove the lid. Remove the auger. Lift the assembled screen and screen wiper basket out of the bowl, and separate. Disassemble the pulp chute.
