Nutrimill Artiste mixer

Brand. New mixer but serious problem. Tried mixing dough at 72% hydration, 455 g mostly bread flour. Dough just glommed onto center post. Speeds 2-3. No real kneading. 

Any help greatly appreciated!

With the my Bosch Universal. I solved it by holding back some water to start with a stiff dough that travels around the bowl and the add the remaining water slowly as the gluten develops it will work in the water. It is being kneaded even as it is wrapped around the center column and I have found it will eventually unwrap and knead as intended if you let it keep running.
