Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator
"I am getting white floaters in my ice water. I have replaced the
filter, let a lot of water flow through but the problem remains. What
are they? Where do they come from? Are they dangerous? How do I get rid
Another user posted a probable cause -- hard water mineral buildup -- but noone has offered a solution
It is caused from calcium carbonate and magnesium among other minerals and is in hard water. When you pour the water out of the tap, no floaties, but when you freeze water, the freezing process forces the minerals into the center of the ice where it forms floaties. It is harmless, just unsightly. You can core the center of ice cubes to remove most floaties but that is impractical, so the other alternative is to get a water softener. Water softeners remove most if not all floaties.

Freeze hot water. my mom has been doing it for years to stop the floaties, and it has always worked.
