Ice water dispenser

I am getting white floaters in my ice water. I have replaced the filter, let a lot of water flow through but the problem remains. What are they? Where do they come from? Are they dangerous? How do I get rid of them?

    I'm getting white floaters in ice water, I've made ice with bottle water and then put the bottle water in a glass of ice made from bottle water and problem persist, I have done the same with water from a Brita charcoal filter system. No matter what I try we are still getting floaters. What is going on ???????

With respect to the little white floaters in the water, it is not bacteria but rather a problem that sometimes occurs with hard (heavily mineralized) water.

My frigidaire refrigerator has terrible chemical smell


FOUL TASTE OR SMELL IN ICE OR WATER FROM FRIDGE

Check ice and water filter: If equipped, the Ice and Water filter in your refrigerator is responsible for removing any debris or contaminants from your water that may still remain after local water treatment. Most filters contain and are made up of carbon and fabric filter. Over time, the filter may become restricted and reduce the water flow to the ice maker, causing a symptom of little or no ice. Most manufacturers recommend replacing the filter every 6 months but local water conditions may require that you replace more frequently. Lastly a clogged drain line can cause a foul smell and get into the ice and water as we,,.

Water no longer flows and therefore no ice. I've changed the filter. No improvement


Check to see if old ice remains inside the ice slots. If not then fill with tap water and allow to freeze. If after the water freezes and cubes drop into the ice bin you will need to replace the dual water control valve. If ice maker does nothing then the ice maker will need replaced. What is the model number?

How long does it take for the plastic taste and smell to stop? We have gone through 5 gallons of water (after following all instructions prior to use) and it still has the plastic taste and some odor.


a couple gallons should have done it?

Timer ice maker kenmore side


If the timer piece you are referring to is behind the square white cover, and it's moving slightly back and forth, you should visually check the ice making area it's self to see if the ejector fingers are jammed with ice, or against the ice stripper. Ice Maker jams can be caused by reduced water pressure to the unit mainly from the water filter, your water filter in the toe kick should be replaced at an interval of 6 months to a year, regardless of filter status light. When water pressure is low, not enough water fills the unit and the undersized cubes can become lodged or stuck in the ice maker while being ejected, equally so if there is an over fill situation caused by other failures the ice maker can't eject at all.

Our Maytag icemaker stopped making ice suddenly after we changed the filter. It dispenses water only.


Does the water have a good flow ? Did you try putting the old filter back in ? Never change the filter just because a little red light comes on . Only replace when the ice cubes get small or the water dispensor flow gets slow . I have found new filters that were bad . Distributors make a lot of money for filters just because of that little red lite . Not just maytag , but all other brands also . Try pouring about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes but doesn't fill , replace the water valve . If it doesn't dump , and holds the cubes for a long period of time , replace the icemaker . Also , you may need to clean the coils of dust , lint , etc....

Floaters in filtered ice water


It is caused from calcium carbonate and magnesium among other minerals and is in hard water. When you pour the water out of the tap, no floaties, but when you freeze water, the freezing process forces the minerals into the center of the ice where it forms floaties. It is harmless, just unsightly. You can core the center of ice cubes to remove most floaties but that is impractical, so the other alternative is to get a water softener. Water softeners remove most if not all floaties.
