Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of Many After owning four previous others, I can truthfully say that I don't know how another could be any better. Quiet drain pump excellent individual ice cubes. Expensive but quality unsurpassed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ice maker out there! We bought our ice maker 2 weeks ago and couldn't be happier.We had a GE monogram one prior to this one and gave us trouble right after the manufacturers warranty ran out. The ice that our new kitchen aid ice maker give us is excelent and would very much tell anyone who is going to buy one to buy this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remodel item This item has been used the most so far. It makes some very loud noises as it is working. I am assuming it is supposed to do that as an ice maker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Clear Ice I installed the ice maker a week ago and could not be more pleased with the performance and the perfect clear ice. I only have one concern: The drain hose supplied with the unit has a soft black connector on the end away from the unit. When the unit is pushed into the cabinet the connector falls over and pinches off the drain. I put a short piece of copper tubing in the connector to prevent it from sealing off the drain and causing water damage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Highly disappointed Have had kitchenAid ice machine for 17 years. After moving 8 years ago I purchased another new ice machine for my new home. Never had one moment of trouble. All of a sudden it stopped working. Out of warranty I call a repairman who replaced a part which cost me $600. Four weeks latter it stopped working and now mother board needs replacing. Decided to purchase new machine. Waited 2 weeks for order to be installed and machine worked for 4 days before I was told problem with motherboard and needed to order parts for replacement. I was not happy and could not get any communication going with Sewell Appliances to replace with new machine. KitchenAid offered me an extra year warranty or $150 for my troubles and fix the machine. I was insulted to think after buying a new machine to replace my previous one, it lasted 5 days before a repair was needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working as expected This machine was purchased for the Administrative wing of a college and while we had multiple issues with our previous ice maker, KitchenAid was great to work with so we ordered a second one (an upgrade from the previous). It was delivered when they said it would be and in good shape. When the guys arrived to deliver it they also installed it and hauled away the old one. The new one installed very easily - any mechanically inclined person could do it. We added an inline filter to the water line but this one comes with a place for a filter - though the filter was not included. After being away for the weekend we came in to a full bucket of nice clear ice and it's been working well ever since. We are very happy with this machine so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE ICEMAKER AND WHIRLPOOL SERVICE!!!! I bought this ice maker 02/2016 along with $12,000.00 in other Kitchen Aid appliances for our new home. In June I started having trouble with this icemaker and have had at least 5 service calls on it. On 02/28/2017 I think was the 5th or 6th service call. They pulled the entire ice machine out cleaned it, replaced the ice cutting grid and now they had to come out again today 06/19/2016 and are going to replace the ice sensor????? The motor/pump have also been replaced. Even the repairman wasn't getting anywhere with Whirlpool. How many times do they have to come out to repair this lemon. The mold/mildew buildup is HORRIBLE!!! My friends don't want to use the ice from this icemaker. It's gross!!! The ice in the back of the icemaker turns to slush so when mixing your ice with coke, tea whatever it's watery. I think they just keep sending repairmen to fix it until the warranty runs out. Never buy this icemaker. I am disappointed in Whirlpool and the backup of their appliance. Even the place I bought my appliances is trying to help. It's obvious I got aa lemon. They can't reccommend this icemaker to others knowing about my icemaker and it's problems. We are getting ready to build a camp and will not be using Whirlpool/ Kitchenaid this time. I have had Kitchenaid appliances for many years and I think the quality went down when Whirlpool bought them out. It's obvious their service did also because I never had poor service with Kitchenaid. DON"T BUY THIS ICEMAKER!!!! YOU WILL REGRET IT!!!
