Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
If there is an inline filter, replace it. They have carbon in them, which loses its effectiveness in a relatively short time. Most people go way too long without replacing the filter. Ideally you should replace it at least once every 6 months.
Whether there is a filter or not, dump the ice, and let the water on the door run for 30 minutes. You could put a little piece of flexible tubing on the spout and put a bucket on the floor. You can buy the tubing at about any hardware or building supply. Usually, a 3/8 od, 1/4 id clear tubing will fit on the spout. But sometimes you would need a 1/2 od x 3/8 id. It is real cheap. Otherwise you can stand there with a cup for half an hour.

SOURCE: Bad water & ice cube taste
Hello redwood City
Your Kitchenaid Superba KSRG25FKBL15 has bad tasting water and ice cubes. You replaced the copper tubing which delivers the water to the fridge and that didn't help. You replaced the copper tubing again with plastic tubing...no better. Any suggestions? Your tap water doesn't taste this bad.You bought a Kenmore french door fridge with water dispenser in the door in July 2008. The fridge has a filter. A few weeks after the fridge came the water and ice started tasting really bad, unlike any bad water taste I have ever tasted. And your tap water is fine. The bad taste appears to be random. Sometimes you get a cup full of nasty water and sometimes it tastes fine.
First you must know you have a 1 year warranty and can have them come out to fix anything, no charge.If it persists. You will have to get tough and you , MUST INSIST THEY REPLACE YOUR FRIDGE
When installing the water line these were a part of the directions!
Did you do this before connecting the water line to your fridge?
"Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the
Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice
1.Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or
off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice.
2.Have the ice cubes been stored too long? Throw old ice
away and make a new supply.
3.Does the freezer and ice storage bin need to be cleaned?
See “Cleaning” or “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.”
4.Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped
properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help
prevent odor transfer to stored food.
5.Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter
may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
6. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or
dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration
system needs additional flushing. Run additional water
through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration
system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to
7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice.
Let me know what works,
Thank You ,

The base grille water filter is located below the freezer
compartment door. Depending on your model, you may have a filter that is installed behind the base grille or a filter that is installed through the base grille.

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.
