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.

    Nice clear cubes

      Can't live without!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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.
