This is the spring cap that holds the spring in the brush assembly of KitchenAid Mixers. This part may also be purchased in the KitchenAid Brush Holder/Cap Kit if the other parts of the kit are needed.
Note: This original KitchenAid mixer spring cap will ONLY fit the K45SS, K5SS and later models. This cap is not interchangeable with the older style, or Pre-SS, mixers that originally had the brass fittings. This part WP116286 replaces part number 116286.
