Spring Missing From Beater Shaft on Tilt Head Classic and Artisan Mixers

Information on Spring Missing From Beater Shaft on KitchenAid Tilt Head Classic and Artisan Mixers

Spring removed for ease of cleaning

As of 12/19/2016 we no longer have a spring and washer on the tilt head Classic Mixer agitator shaft.

  • It is not necessary for the operation of the mixer, and it is easier to clean the beater shaft without the spring.
    • If your beater makes noise, or if the beater feels loose, CLICK HERE to perform the "dime test" to ensure the beater to bowl clearance is adjusted properly, and the beater is securely attached.  Removal of the spring does not impact this.
  • It had been removed from bowl lift models previously.

Literature will reflect this change in future, but it is possible that the original literature showing the spring and washer will be included in the box until it is depleted.
