Excerpt from KitchenAid Glass Bowl - Adjusting the Beater Bowl Clearance on KSM150 :
To adjust the clearance setting, just move the beater adjustment screw 1/4 turn each time until the dime moves the right amount. Once you have the beaters set correctly, you will be able to do any job with this mixer, as large or small a job as you need. Once the beaters were set at the right height, the dough mixed perfectly, and I was able to make biscotti to my heart's delight. Hope this "KitchenAid Glass Bowl - Adjusting the Beater Bowl Clearance on KSM150" article inspire you and others.
KitchenAid has a superior support department, and they walked me through what I needed to do. The easiest way to know that your beater bowl clearance is set correctly is by putting a dime into the bottom of the KitchenAid glass bowl. Then turn on the mixer at setting 2 using the flat beater, and if it is set properly, it should move the dime about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch each time the KitchenAid glass bowl rotates. If that happens, then you know that you have the mixer set to mix everything at the bottom of the bowl into your dough (or whatever else you are mixing), and not too low to cause extra wear and tear on the beater. If the beaters are set too close to the bowl, then over time the extra friction will wear down the beaters prematurely.
