How does a water purifier work?


A water purifier works through the process of reverse osmosis. Water purifiers cleanse water by passing it through a series of filters. This helps remove large amounts of contaminants and other harmful chemicals

Ice smells and taste like chlorine but tap water does not?


Freezing a liquid is kind of a purification process. For example, an iceburg is pure water even though it is frozen from salt water.

The same thing is happening with your ice. Pure water freezes first and leaves behind the ****. The **** and last bits of ice freeze at the bottom of your ice cube tray. You taste the concentrated **** (including chlrorine) on the bottom of the tray. Some regions, the water is from rivers instead of deep wells. The taste there can get real funky or real strong chlorine.

There is a bad order coming from ice and water dispenser. I changed the filter but it didn't help. Smells like ''dirt''. Thanks, Linda


Replace water supply line with the plastic tubing ice maker line. It fixed mine that had a metal braided line on it that made the water taste kie rubber and dirt,, after that I tried a vinyl braided line.and it made the water taste like garden hose water.. The plastic tubing was the cure. Reply and tell me what you have.

Moldy taste from Whirlpool side by side


The problem can still be in your lines, or in the dispenser itself. If you run hot water with a little bit of vinegar in the lines and let it sit for about 30 minutes and then flush the whole system this should take care of your problem

My new Whirlpool Refrigerator the water and ice still stink


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.

The water and ice both have a strong metal/mineral taste to them


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.
