Why can’t my mixer handle thicker dough?

My mixer seems to be functioning correctly but when I try to make something thicker like bread dough, it can’t seem to mix.

Bread dough should only be kneaded using the dough hooks, as they are designed to work with high torque. If you believe that you are using the mixer with a reasonable load it is possible that the motor is overheating, and you may need to follow this guide to replace the motor.

These are nice mixers, but bread dough definitely taxes them. Try adding the liquid ingredients first, then adding the flour slowly, a cup at a time. Your recipe may be too stiff for the mixer to handle. You can add water, a tablespoon or two at a time until the dough loosens up to the point where the dough hooks can handle it. Regardless of how much the bowl looks like it would fit, I wouldn't try a recipe using more than four cups of flour in this mixer.
