I am not an expert by any means, but this seems like operator error, not the mixer or dough hook being the problem.
Dough does climb the hook. Like said before, run it a little faster and the dough will be pushed towards the bowl and not climb up as much.
I can turn mine on a and walk away with no issue. Of coarse you do need scrape down the sides or the hook occasionally.
How long have you had this mixer and how many times have you used it to knead dough?
Practice does make perfect.
