Is the bowl worn?
Check the base of the bowl to see if the "bumps" that lock into the base plate all seem intact or if any of them are pushed in. If the bumps are not intact, the bowl will need to be replaced.

Are you using the correct speed?
Are you using speed 2 only for making bread? If you knead bread on a higher speed, the force and weight of the dough can cause the bowl to unlock.
Does the beater need to be adjusted?
As part of routine maintenance, it is important to check that the beater is neither too high nor too low.
- If it is too low, it can press into the bowl, and cause undue pressure on the bowl, which can cause the bowl to unlock.
- If it is too high, the lock on a tilt head mixer may not fully lock, and the head may wobble.
