Re: the water and ice both have a strong metal/mineral...
Remove filter and use dispenser a lot. Chlorine in water may help clean out system that filter is now removing. Not much else you can do other than replace all the water lines and tank. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

When your water starts tasting funny and you can see some kind of particles in the ice, then it means the water filter is dirty and needs to be changed. Try to get the water filter replaced and the funny taste will stop.
If you are having some kind of lime taste or mud taste, or lime deposits or mineral deposit, is simply means you will have to replace the water line and reservior.
Hope this helped.
All the best
Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice New plumbing connections? New plumbing connections can cause discolored or off-flavored ice. Ice stored too long? Discard ice. Wash ice bin. Allow 24hours for ice maker to make new ice. Odor transfer from food? Use airtight, moisture proof packaging to store food. Are there minerals (such as sulfur) in the water? A water filter may need to be installed to remove the minerals. Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration system needs additional flushing. Flush the water system before using a new water filter. Replace water filter when indicated.

Change the supply line to the plastic tube line or copper. Do not use a braided plastic or metal braided line these will make the water taste bad. Changed mine to the plastic line and cured mine, no filters needed.
I have a whirlpool refriderator that only makes ice. There is no filter in the fridge itself. The water line in the basement is copper, then it has a valve off of the main line. I originally had installed a stainless steel line running to the refriderator. The order of the ice can be described as a metal tasting taste. I purged the line prior to connecting it. I then replaced it with a pvc line, purging it all so. The taste of metal isn't there but it still has a small taste to it. Prior to having a ice maker, we made ice in ice trays with the sink water and had no issues. Can someone shed some light on this issue please.
Did you use new water lines? If you did then clear the icecubes from the tray and use an appliance store cleaning solution to wash it out with. their solution is designed for fridge use and wont leave an after taste......Rinse well...... Also for awsome Ice......Install a large in-line water filter.... Makes mine taste like frozen mountain spring water with no nasty taste or smell. Hope it works for ya!
YOU SAID, YOU HAVE KENMORE ELITE BOTTOM FREEZER WITH ICE MAKER THE ICE CUBES SMELL
HORRIBLE ALWAYS, I EVEN TOSS THEM OUT EVERY FEW DAYS, STILL SAME PROBLEM
Ice has bad odor and taste. 1• Ice has picked up odor or flavor from strong food stored in refrigerator or freezer. 2• Water running to ice maker has poor taste or odor. 3• Ice not used frequently enough. 4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will produce fresh supply. 5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying company. 7• Discard stale ice.
You said, Your Kitchenaid Superba KSRG25FKBL15 has bad tasting water and ice cubes. You
replaced the copper tubing which delivers the water to the fridge and
that didn't help. You replaced the copper tubing again with plastic
tubing...no better. Any suggestions? Your tap water doesn't taste this
bad.You bought a Kenmore french door fridge with water dispenser in the
door in July 2008. The fridge has a filter. A few weeks after the
fridge came the water and ice started tasting really bad, unlike any
bad water taste I have ever tasted. And your tap water is fine. The bad
taste appears to be random. Sometimes you get a cup full of nasty water
and sometimes it tastes fine.
First you must know you have a 1 year warranty and can have them come out to fix anything, no charge.If it persists. You will have to get tough and you , MUST INSIST THEY REPLACE YOUR FRIDGE
When installing the water line these were a part of the directions! Did you do this before connecting the water line to your fridge? "Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the copper tubing."
Whirlpool remedy Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice 1.Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice. 2.Have the ice cubes been stored too long? Throw old ice away and make a new supply. 3.Does the freezer and ice storage bin need to be cleaned? See “Cleaning” or “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.” 4.Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help prevent odor transfer to stored food. 5.Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter may need to be installed to remove the minerals. 6. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration system needs additional flushing. Run additional water through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to 7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice. Let me know what works, Thank You , HUUUM!!
