Dishwasher leaves taste on glasses

Glasses appear clean. Drinking water initially tastes OK but after 5-10 minutes a strong taste has dissolved from the glass into the water. This cannot be tasted with flavoured drinks and does not seem to happen if you use mugs to drink water from. What is adhering to the glass and how can we prevent it happening?

Water smells from my side by side

Hello Maria, this is JK. I understand that you recently purchased a pre-owned refrigerator. Changing out the filter and the tubing were a great start to clean water. If you have not already, I would encourage you to run 10-12 glasses of water to freshen the supply and rinse out the tank. If you find that this odor and taste still persist, you may want to have the water tank replaced. Hope this helps!

The water and ice coming through the filter is undrinkable, tastes awful, no odor. Removed the filter - still bad

Good day,
First thing is to check the supply line.
Shut the house down, at the valve located by the meter.
Take a bucket, and place a drinking glass in the middle.
Have someone turn the valve on for a 15 second count.
Take the full glass, place it in the fresh food compartment for one hour and then do a taste test.
If bad, the supply source is your problem and should be replaced.
If you change the supply line, make sure the tap in is not at the bottom of the house line if it is a horizontal line.
Tap in should be either at the 3 o'clock or 9 o'clock position, with the 12 o'clock position being ideal., if possible. (do not connect to a hot water line).
As well, the tap in valve should be new.
If no luck, I would suggest you replace the dual water valve located on the back rear of the machine.
You will need to activate the water dispenser for a minimum of 12 glasses to flush the total system

Cycle timer displays very different times for cycle, cleaning is not particularly good. Problems related? glasses appear filmy, even when rinse agent is used.

your dishwasher uses an optical sensor to constantly monitor the water turbidity or cleanliness if it detects the water is cloudy it will extend the wash time and vice versa there are several reasons for cloudy glasses check to see if they taste salty,or if the cloudiness washes off,this usually happens when the baskets are loaded badly and the detergents/temps are not set correctly.

Water from the kitchen tap is good tasting, water

The water has been in the tank for too long. Draw and discard a least 7 glasses of water to freshen the supply. Draw another 7 glasses of water or more to completely rinse out tank. Repeat the process if necessary.

Drinking water has a bad taste and smell.

You will have to trace where the foul smell comes from by tracing the water line and testing the source. Check if it is before or after the filter you get the smell, if it is before the filter, you need to check if it is on the line which comes from the source or it is from the source. Most likely cleaning or probably a replacement of the part if cleaning does not help.

Dishwasher not cleaning properly and everything tastes like soap


To start with reduce the amount of detergent you are using. 2 teaspoons of detergent is enough for any wash.

Probably blocked spray arms is the cause of the unit not cleaning properly. Remove each spray arm (there are 3 in total) and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results. The bottom spray arm is the easiest and just pulls out the other two in the middle and the top you have to unscrew like a childs lock on a tablet bottle. Push up from underneath and unscrew each arm.

Hope this helps.

Ice tastes funny all of a sudden.

you need to throw out the ice. ice gets stale after a couple of weeks , so toss the old ice. also is there something like garlic or another food that has a strong oder uncovered in your refrigerator section? air flow covers all of the unit, both refrigerator and freezer sections. if your refrigerator is not smelly , put an open box of arm hammer baking soda on a shelf in both sections of the refrigerater. if water and ice still taste funny shut off water supply and check the filter at the rear in the lower part of the unit. take off connecter and visibly check the strainer in the water valve,clean it out by removing it and rinsing it under the sink faucet. make sure that water from other faucets taste ok . the only thing left is to flush out the water tank by filling up glasses of water until the water gets room temperature . that's about all you can do short of replacing the water line leading to the refrigerator, although i have never had to do that before. good luck
