What type of filter does this need?

Asked by Karen August 21, 2017

Answers

I've had my ice machine for a couple of weeks now. It makes LOTS of ice. However, it came without the necessary water filter. I complained about why it was not installed at the factory while it was being made. KitchenAid sent me one in the mail, no charge. Strangely, it's made by Whirlpool. It is an ICE2 filter number F2WC9I1. Hope that helps.

I did not understand the responses for the drain pump. Can the KUID308ESS be used without a drain pump.

Asked by Ben May 9, 2016

Answers

I have a KUID308ESS. The ice in the bin slowly melts and drains out the bottom of the machine. There needs to be a 2" PVC pipe stubbed up through the floor, under the machine to catch that dripping water and drain it away. No pump required because it's gravity fed. If you have a drain that is say, in the wall behind the machine, you'll need an ice maker with a pump to get it up there and out. Hope that helps.

I have had two earlier models of this KitchenAid ice maker. I have a gravity drain right under the machine. Why would I need a pump?

Hi Don, for this Ice Maker a drain pump is required. Hopefully this information is beneficial to you. Thank you for your inquiry regarding our KitchenAid appliances!

Good luck with that one! lol I looked around a lot but never found any that cheap. Plus if you did I would not trust it, the old saying you pay for what you get comes to mind. I settled on the 18 inch kitchen aid, watch for them on sale, you can save a couple hundred but still will not get to a grand.

What kind of cubes does it make square or round

Asked by MK January 4, 2016

Small square ones, great for tea and drinks but may melt fast for an ice chest.

I'm answering my own question. Now that I have the new one, I was able to swap the handles and keep the same look that matches my other KitchenAid appliances. The handle on the new machine matched exactly the hole pattern of the old one. Not an easy swap by any means, but I managed to get it done. Now, I'm waiting on a water filter to get here so we can use it. It's hard to believe we spent this much money on a KitchenAid appliance that's worthless until I purchase another part for it. Hey KitchenAid, how about sell one that works straight out of the box?

We just bought this Kitchen Aid 18 in. 51 lbs free standing ice machine maker and was delivered on 1/30/19 and it was missing the water line part - a 1/4 water line slip and compression nut. I was charged an extra $40 by the appliance repair company is installing this machine. There was no way to connect it to our existing water line without this part. Worst of all, this machine doesn't drain. I have an ice maker full of water and no ice. It was suppose to come with a drain pump. Please contact me - order # WA51700463. Spoke with Felicity who tried to help (she documented the issue). She said it was suppose to include the drain pump and water line. Since I have to get it installed again - I will need to have at least $200 credited - installation & water line. I'm glad I called Home Depot right away. I was told I had 48 hours to report anything missing. I have to call again in the morning since HD could not contact Maytag. Hope this gets resolved soon.

Looked around at a bunch of these ice makers. Settled on the Kitchen Aid. They are proud of these appliances however the price was the best I found for this type and it was on sale. In addition the Ice Maker matched my kitchen aid dish washer and my other stainless appliances. It was easy to install, I did purchase the extended warranty just for peace of mind. I have no issue with it and it makes a huge amount of ice. We had it thru Thanksgiving when we had over family for the occasion, it did it's job, kept us with ice the whole time. My wife likes the smaller size cubes for ice tea and glasses, for an ice chest they may melt faster but I do not do that very often. I would recommend this product.

Can't live without!
Customer review from kitchenaid.com logo
This is our 2nd kitchenaid ice maker. The original one was in our house when we purchased the home. After we lived here for almost 10 years, we had to replace. The maker is quick to make ice, quiet. My only complaint is that you have to use a filter with the new one, but if it will help extend the life of the appliance, I will use it, as our area has extremely hard water.

great clear ice!
Customer review from kitchenaid.com logo
We owned this model that was about 20 years old. Decided to replace it with the newest version and love it. Still produces the clear ice, but now it has a filter built into the unit that's easy to replace. The unit is quiet too. Worth the extra cost versus a cheaper brand.
