The water from my LG French door refrigerator tasted fine.....until i replaced the filter. I have the refrigerator more than 6 montgs with no issues. Flushed the lines but nit helping. Please help.


Hello, did you put the filter on in the right direction? Check the arrow on the filter. It probably will clear up and soon or get a new filter, take the old one back for a new one.

Why does my water smell like mildew?


There may be algae contamination of the system. Disconnect the water supply and run in a mixture of 2 tsp of Baking Soda (bicarbonate of soda) in 1 cup of water through the line, from tap connector to dispenser. Leave the solution sitting in the lines for 1/2 hour prior to flushing with clean water and removing any ice made with the solution. Bicarbonate of soda is great for destroying cell walls of plants and fungi (algae, mold etc) and removing smells.

White vinegar is also hostile to algae, and doesn't leave a lingering smell, but bleach should be avoided, or used very sparingly, in systems used to supply water for consumption by people or pets.

Slow water flow


I would try the backwash as you suggest. Also, I had to run a few gallons of water through a new filter, for it to work properly..
Hope it helps.... good luck!

Old filter in and water started to sputter, made clunky noises and flow very slow. Removed filter and used plug - water ran fine not filtered.- Replaced with new Maytag filter and water sputtered, flow...


Hello there, when new filters are fitted usually they are expected to spurt for a little bit before they normalize and begin to flow properly. Dispense water continuously for 10 minutes. This usually arises when the flow of water through the unit not being allowed through properly and usually takes the new filter a couple of minutes to get accustomed to the water flow and get water circulating through all its components hence the spurts. Alternatively you can check to ensure that the water supply is turned on full and the filter is properly fitted. If all of these are in place then the dispense mechanism might be faulty.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

Change water filter. now water is running slow. put old filter back in, still running slow. ICE2O


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.The only thing that can cause slow water is low water pressure from the house line a bad filter or a frozen water line or tank. Most of the time its the house water supply it should be at least 35psi.

Recheck you steps and see the warnings:


1) Turn on the main water supply & shut-off valve of the water
supply line.

2) Run water through the dispenser until the water runs clear
(6~7 minutes). This will clean the water supply system and
clear air from the lines.

3) Additional flushing may be required in some households.

4) Open the refrigerator door and check if water leaks around
the water filter.

Remove any residual matter inside the water supply line after installing filter.

NOTE :A newly-installed water filter cartridge may cause water to briefly
spurt from the dispenser.

Even after replacing water filter there seems to be a reduction in water flow from door dispencer and Ice is small and sometimes hollow


The condition of the ice is also an indication of reduced water flow. There is a screen filter in the water line where the water supply connects to the water inlet valve. Take the line off and see if it's partially blocked. Cut the water off either at a shut off valve behind the fridge or under the sink or where ever your water comes from. Turn it back on and let it run into a pail to flush out the line.

Water smells like rotten eggs and we put a new filter in not long ago. We also have new a whirlpool side by side.


How is the tap water? Is the refrigerator causing the odor?. if so, Remove the water supply lineand drain the water out of it and put about a teaspoone of bleach into it. Hook the line back up and dispenesome water r. just enough to get the bleach into the filte and lines. Let sit for an hour , then dispense the water until the bleach is flushed out of the system. You might have to remove the filter before this flushing and repace it. You need to see what the filter is catching.Then call your water company if it it is also the tap water.

G.E. Arctica Profile Frig produces bad drinking water


The bleach idea sounds the best. How did you get the bleach into the system? It would have to be under pressure from the water inlet to the connection on the refrig, running the water dispenser for several minutes until you could smell the bleach from the dispensed water, plus the icemaker would need to be cycled, and then left for at least 15 minutes to an hour, then flushed with clear water. (again, several, as in about 10, minutes for this step) (icemaker line also needs to be flushed with clear water) Best to be done with the filter bypass plug in place, then when done, a new filter. It is not really possible to replace all the water lines, as the one inside the freezer door cannot be replaced without replacing the entire door.
