I'm having trouble removing the pin holding the planetary. I need to remove it in order to remove the top of the machine exposing the motor so I can troubleshoot the main problem with my KitchenAid classic. I tapped the pin with a hammer & drift punch but it moved very little. I sprayed WD-40 & still no luck. Some of the pin got worn in the process of trying to tap it out. I also damaged a bit of the paint surrounding the pin. How do I remove it while minimizing damage to the machine? My machine stopped working properly the other day & it could be a worn gear. I wont know the source until I have access to the motor. Thanksenter image description here
