    The water coming out of the door tastes and smells fine but the ice smells AWFUL. I removed the ice bin to clean it and it still smells. It seems that the plastic and metal are retaining the smell. Any ideas???

    My ice seems to be ok when it is in water, but when put in soda or any other liquid it smells like rotten eggs. I have public water and my house is only 4 yr old. Where can I get this odor filter for the main line?

I have had my Pelonis water cooler for approx 2 years now the cold water tastes like mildew. I tried cleaning it with a product from Culligan but the problem seems worse. Any suggestions


I would suggest a 50/50 mix of water and bleech, and make sure you let it soak long enough to kill the germs. Then flush is well with plenty of water.

Ice smells like mildew! We purchased the refrigerator/freezer new 6 months ago. It does not seem to be a problem caused by other foods in the freezer. Model number: FFTR2126LW


Mildew smell in your ice is caused by one of three things. 1. Old, dirty, clogged water filter 2. Bad water quality from your house water supply 3. Ice that has not been used and sits in the bucket for time can become stale tasting.

Our new maytag fridge makes the worst tasting ice. What is the problem??? Model # MBF2258WEWO


Are you using plastic or copper tubing for the water lines. I was never a big fan of plactic because it tends to trap mold and mildew.

Awful smell! I drain it every cycle, I use the washer cleaner, everything! I am so sick of my towels smelling awful.


Sounds like the little flexible apron just in front of your washer drum has mildewed. Take a look and see if it is holding water, and look for mold while your'e at it. Use a good bathroom mold and mildew remover to kill the mess and deodorize it.

Icemaker in brand new fridge makes ice that tastes like mildew


brand new?OK...first,did you flush the water filter by dispencing 2 pitchers of water through the door.wait,that it.basicly the water in your ice maker is the same water that comes out of your tap.you may find that you dont like the filtered water, there should be a bypass plug that can go in place of the filter.solution wise thats about it.

Ice in my ge frigerator smells and tastes like mold,in the fridge


I would suggest changing the plastic feeder tubing to the filter and the ice maker on the unit. Also, the ice maker units unplug and can be removed quite easily, you can also take that out and give it a thorough cleaning with warm soapy water, being a careful not to get water on any electrical parts.
