Bought this as a replacement for the identical model that was 8 or 9 years old and needed an expensive repair, pretty much the same as all our other appliances installed at the same time. So I've been disappointed that this and our other appliances didn't last longer--that's apparently the way it is.Since we had never used the fridge ice maker because we had this one, we used the fridge for about 6 months and then THAT ice maker broke, too. By that time I was really ready to go back to having nice, clean, clear ice like this model makes. Once you get used to clear ice, it's pretty hard to go back to using a fridge.This one has several improvements over the older model. The first thing I noticed is that it has a built in filter. Since we're supplying filtered water already because the previous model didn't have it, we hope the filter will last a lot longer.The most noticeable change, however, is that this one is brightly lit with LED bulbs inside. It doesn't improve the already excellent ice, but it sure looks great!I like the size cubes that this makes, which is why I chose it in the first place--if you want larger cubes that don't melt quite as fast, say for whiskey, you might look elsewhere. These cubes are excellent for sparkling water, ice tea, sodas, etc. Highly recommended.

I received this to replace a 9 year old ice maker as part of a home warranty. Arrived looking perfect and was installed. The ice maker came without a filter (expected it to be included). Directions say 24 hrs for first batch of ice. 24 hours and nothing. Thought it might be because there was no filter so overnighted a filter. Waited another 24 hours after arrival of filter. Still no ice. Call Whirlpool warranty. Technician said need a new pump because the pump was broken and there was no bracket to hold it in place. Needless to say, I have waited 3 weeks for ice and don't expect the new pump to be installed for another week. I also hope a new pump will fix the sound. this ice maker is much LOUDER than my old one.

Love the ice!
from Orlando, FL
I have only had this ice maker for a little over a week. It replaced a "lemon" that was still under warranty (and after a lot of hassle with Whirlpool). That "lemon" replaced another Whirlpool lemon that only lasted a few years. When it's working, I love this ice machine. But my past experience with Whirpool ice machines unfortunately makes me hesitant to trust that something won't go wrong with this one as well.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great Supply Of Crystal Clear Ice!
from Little Rock, Arkansas
Replaced a well used machine(also a Whirlpool) with which I had been pleased. Am very happy with the light in this machine. Shines brightly on the crystal clear and perfect ice. At Sunday meals, even my Grandkids can't run out of ice it produces so bountifully. I. Lovely new purchase!

so far very good machine
from new jersey
have my ice machine 1 week, replaced a ge monogram.much quieter , nice clear ice, and replaces ice very fast.
This my second one I use RO water in the unit
Love the amount of ice it makes
Love how fast it makes ice and the amount it makes. Although it is very loud when it dumps the ice. Scares you the first couple of times before you get use to it. We use to always run out of ice by the end of the day, but no more! Very pricey. Paid as much for this as we did our main refrigerator.
I love this ice machine!!!
from Ridgefield, CT
I love the small sized ice cubes/squares, their almost clarity, the lighted interior, fast ice button- Just everything about this ice machine!

no filter in ice maker
from Homosassa FL
I have had product for 10 or 12 days and have been unable to turn it on as it came with no filter and wont work without the filter so it is a disaster as far as I am concerned
FAST ACTING,QUIET,PRODUCES MUCH ICE QUICKLY.
from BROKEN ARROW, OK.
HAVE NOT HAD ANY MAJOR PROBLEMS,PRODUCES ALOT OF ICE QUICKLY,QUIET. MEETS MY HOME NEEDS.SUGGEST THE ICE SCOUP BE BETTER PLACED INSIDE OR A BETTER HOLDER FOR THE SCOUP. ICE GETS INTO THE HOLDER AND REJECTS THE SCOUP AT TIMES.
