I have the same exact problem and have had my mixer for 3 years also. I read on the kitchenaid forums that it could be either the speed control (control board) or the hall effect sensor. Good luck!

I got it at this website. It's very easy to replace. It's the part that connects to the speed control at the top with the wide grey wire.

Which mixer do you have? I have the 6 quart KP26M1XMR.
Model KP26M1XMR4
Diagram 2, Part 9.
