Do older Kitchenaid mixer attachments work with a new mixer?

Does anyone know whether attachments from an older Kitchenaid stand mixer will work with a new KA mixer? Can't find anything about this on the internet. Thanks a lot!

    Does your question relate to hub attachments? If yes, then they should fit.

    If your question relates to things like bowls, beaters, etc. they tend to be model specific. I don't think, for example a bowl or beater from a 4C will fit any of the newer models.

    Your question reminds me how much I miss the old KA Conversations forums. Kitchenaid shut it down a few years ago and moved to a Facebook page. It's a very different environment, but may be helpful to you if pose questions to a KA rep.

      I suppose it depends on which mixer, how old, and which attachments. Kitchenaid lists currently available accessories for various models:


      As you can see, different models have bowls and beaters of different sizes and shapes, and I wouldn't assume that other attachments are interchangeable either.
