Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Working as expected

Submitted by LTD - 8/11/2017

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.

Excellent Ice Maker With Integrated Water Filter

Submitted by JBinTexas - 7/4/2017

We bought this Kitchenaid Ice Maker primarily because of the kind of ice it makes-the little square, clear "chicklet" ice which works so well in most drinks. We had a ten year old GE Monogram ice maker which failed, and which made the same kind of ice, but GE no longer makes a similar model-this Kitchenaid is about the only one left if you want this particular type of ice. The ice maker itself is excellent. It comes with a drain pump already installed internally (a plus if you do not have a gravity drain), and not as a separate kit as suggested by Kitchenaid documentation. So, if you want to use a gravity drain you'll need to re-route the drain lines and the electrical connections and/or also just remove the drain pump and use the gravity drain. I installed this machine myself and it wasn't hard, but rerouting the drain and electrical from the included drain pump was pesky. I also purchased a 5/8" internal diameter reinforced vinyl drain hose to extend the drain reach to the gravity drain-the included line is too short, in my opinion, and more designed to connect the drain pump. You will also need an ice maker supply line (NOT included)-the same kind that hooks up a household refrigerator ice maker. If you do not have the supply line, you can't install the machine. This ice maker also has an integrated, changeable water filter, which is excellent and makes a positive difference in ice quality and flavor (filter is NOT included). Overall, I'm very happy we got this machine-it's working perfectly and we love it. I might finally add that I called Kitchenaid customer support in Michigan before we bought this and asked some pretty technical and detailed questions about the machine and the install. The representatives I got were promptly available, knowledgable, helpful and completely outstanding. A BIG plus for a potentially complicated appliance and I like the "Made in the USA" product support. I would consider Kitchenaid support a significant plus.

Submitted by Dee - 6/19/2017

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!!!

Great Ice Maker

Submitted by Steve A - 6/7/2017

This is an Ice Maker with a Drain Pump. It makes the great Cocktail sized Ice. Makes ice very quickly and a lot of it. It has been very quiet so far which is unusual for an Ice Maker. I am very pleased although I have only had this up and running for a couple of weeks. So far, it has exceeded my expectations.

Poor performance

Submitted by Builder one - 2/26/2017

This is my second one within a year. Kitchen aide would not replace first one because it didn't have enough of a repair record. The motherboard and water inlet valve went out within 6 months. Very loud function during cycling. The second one is makes only half the ice and what it does makes is wet and is melting as fast as it makes it. I have to keep setting on "rapid mode". Regular mode makes about bowl full between cycles. Retail center swapped out the first icemaker but it was not Kitchaide. I'm a builder and will do what I can to steer my clients away from KA.

The ice is great, but it comes with noise and heat

Submitted by Ice Queen - 11/5/2016

I love having fresh ice readily available, but this ice maker is noisier than a fridge ice maker, and several times a night, I wake up to what sounds like something falling off the counter. It's the ice dropping. It's also very warm. I can feel a difference in temperature just walking by, and sometimes the countertop is warm enough to instantly soften a stick of butter. It even warms the cabinet next to it. I realize it melts the ice in order to keep the ice fresh, but it seems like it could do that half as often and still produce fresh ice. I'm not sure I would have included this in our remodel knowing how noisy it is.

No, I do not recommend this product

Fresh Cold Ice with bi-products

Submitted by Ice lover - 10/31/2016

Please keep in mind we have only had this ice maker for about 6 months. It has consistently produced fresh cold ice for us however the two bi-products of its production are noise and heat. At night the noise is extremely noticeable. The humming of the compressor is tolerable but the noise it makes to produce and drop the ice is very loud! It is also quite hot in the cabinet next to the unit despite the venting at the bottom of the unit.

No, I do not recommend this product

Great ice maker

Submitted by Have lots of ice - 9/27/2016

We had to replace our previous Kitchenaid Icemaker(3 yrs old) because it was frequently springing water leaks & ruined my cabinet. I am pleased so far with this Icemaker but it's value will remain to be seen once we hit the 2 yr mark. It is quieter than our previous model when the pump is sending the water to the sink drain and the crash of ice is still heard but about half as loud. The filling process is a bit quieter but the cycle seems to have a bit longer rinsing sound. This Icemaker produces plenty of ice but I find that all in all, it seems to be melting in the Icemaker almost as fast as it is made. Storage chamber just seems to be warmer & the drawers in the cabinet next to the Icemaker seems to be warmed from the heat of the Icemaker more so than the previous model. Our bedroom is very close to the kitchen and the noise I hear in the middle of the night is nowhere near as bad as our previous Icemaker...I can actually sleep through this one.

Expect the usual under cabinet ice maker issues

Submitted by mgm homeowner - 8/26/2016

1)Installation was tough into an existing kitchen. There is a plastic piece along the top edge and side that catches if the space is a tight fit so two men are required to pull it out if connection or repair is needed. 2)For whatever reason my plumber did not install the filter. I had to buy a new filter. 3)The water valve broke about a month after installation and the ice maker ran without water for a few days. The plumber that replaced it said this is a new valve, he's never seen one like it. 4)In order to clean the coils, I had to go buy a new screwdriver with a T20 star head! I had already bought a special screwdriver that removed the cover screws on my old ice maker. Why do you make it so hard for the average customer to perform routine maintenance? You have to be a contortionist to get the ice maker cleaner fluid poured in also. I am used to the difficulty for the benefit of nice ice, but really a new screwdriver plus cleaner fluid that should be done regularly is difficult to find except by ordering it online.

This ice machine replaces an ice machine of a different brand which was trouble from day one. This Kitchen Aid has WONDERFUL ice that looks and tastes great. It has an integrated water filter (which is new to me) and the quality of the ice is great. It is also much quieter than my previous model. We live in Houston, Texas so we use a lot of ice and I am looking forward to many years of great ice production.

Love that it is quiet; love the cube size

Submitted by Bariteri - 2/5/2016

It was installed in mid-January, 2016, so writing this early on in the process... I love the quietness; it is so much quieter than our prior one. I love the small cube size and it makes an abundance of cubes. The design of the scoop holder needs to be adjusted; Ice gets into it and makes it sometimes difficult to put the ice scoop back in the resting place. And I am still not used to the flap coming out with the ice flowing over when the door opens. Sometimes ice escapes to the floor. But, all in all, it is a winner for me!

My last tech who was out her 3 times refuses to work on it again. He says it is the worst appliance he has ever worked on. Still fighting with company to get anything done. I think they are waiting for my warranty to run out. Don't put yourself through this.
