Question about Refrigerators
The taste is most likely from calcium deposits in the internal plumbing of the ice maker water/dispenser, the only suggestion would be to remove the system component's and flush them out with white Vinegar, this will dissolve the deposits and is non toxic..

The plastic supply lines over time deteriorate and wind up causing the water to smell.
Replace the plastic line with a stainless steel ice maker water supply line available at any home improvement center. They are 1/4 inch inside diameter lines and fittings.
They come in 5/10 and 20 foot lenghts.
After you do this run about 2 gallons of water through the water in the door dispenser. Discard the first 3 drops of ice from the ice maker.
Your ice quality will improve.
Any further help, let me know.
