I don't have any problem with any of the KA hub attachments.

But then, I use them on my KA model G mixers.....

It may very well be true what Gadzooks said about the newr machines.

That they are probably not as reliable as they were when Hobart had the division, though Whirlpool would say that isn't true.

Still, most of them ARE excellent for beating, mixing, whipping and for making dough for bread!

Whirlpool though, has become the small and major appliance king, since having brought up just about every major apppliance co that was about to go under. For generations, Maytag was the king of the washer / dryer co's, Now Whirlpool has them as well.

As a follow up, the new/ replacement mixer is starting to make a Tic - Tic - Tic noise. Sounds like it's coming from the motor.

Sounds like it is time to ask for a total refund.

I'm sorry Wart....

If it IS the motor that's making the noise, then you might just as well go buy a new one (mixer), because having a new motor put in would pretty much cost you the same amount of money, if not more.

And if the cost to replace the motor doesn't break the bank, the charge for the labor work most certainly will!

I'm sorry to hear your mixer is disappointing you. My thrift store N50 has already made some excellent sweet Italian sausage. It doesn't even blink. I did splurge on an old metal food grinder attachment, but...my old K45 runs the grinder OK, too. Probably won't tow three water-skiers like the N50, though. And I have a food processor as well. One food processor takes up far less space than ALL the possible attachments for the mixer, and I really use them for very different cooking tasks. I do know a nice little K45 that's gonna be looking for a new home...

You're not getting rid of your K45, are you?!

From what you said earlier, it, too, has earned its weight in gold. It's a trooper now.

It has earned its weight in gold on macaroons alone. But my kitchen is small, and my first lesson on attachment came when I was five. My grandmother told me not to give the chickens names. I have listed it for sale on a popular online venue, but have had zero inquiries. I may have subconsciously overpriced it. Would serve me right if nobody buys it.

That would be a good thing.

Because, should ANYTHING ever go wrong with the one that you are now using, you'll at least have a backup.

I say that you should hold off on selling it because, like I've always been told; You don't miss your water until the well runs dry.

In other words, it's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it!

My 22-year-old K-45SS, I will NEVER part with! It may be old as the hills, but it still has a lot of milage left and it's still alive and kicking! In the unlikely event of a whimpout of the other two stand mixers, I can always go back to the K-45SS to get me out of a jam.
