Water has debris floating in it

I recently changed the filter because there was white debris floating in the water but it did not clear the debris.

    White ghostly residue floating in our fridge water. We flushed the lines with peroxide and it went away for awhile (3 days) and now it's back. It doesn't appear to make us sick when we get a little of it in our glass without realizing it but we've completely stopped using it b/c it's digusting looking - like a tapeworm. We've also changed the filter.

    I have the exact same problem and I'm not buying the fact that i have hard or soft water! If so - then the entire neighborhood(new construction) doesn't have the same problem with the water????

Sounds liek you have a hard water problem.  That debris is more than likey limescale and hard water build up.  A filter does not always remove it all.  You need to get a water softener.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, PLD4460. Only 4 years old. The dishes on the top rack are not coming clean anymore. Something as simple as left small bits of broccoli do not even get rinsed out of the...


Hi

If the top rack of the dishwasher doesn't get clean, check your appliance to see if you can fix the problem.
First check the spray Arms to make sure the holes in the spray arms are free and clear of debris. Your dishwasher should have several spray arms, including one at the bottom of the tub, one under the top rack, and possibly a third spray arm on the top of the tub. Sometimes food and mineral deposits can block holes in the spray arms, preventing water from spraying effectively. If this occurs, warm some white vinegar and pour it into a spray bottle. Spray the holes with the vinegar and dislodge debris with a toothpick or large safety pin.

Then check to see if your dishwasher has clogged filters. Filters generally cover the drain valve area to catch debris as the water drains from the dishwasher. Many dishwashers have maintenance-free filters, but your dishwasher may have filters that need cleaning. Read your owner's manual before you perform any filter maintenance to avoid damaging your dishwasher.

Check your water temperature to make sure it's hot enough. Water that is under 120 degrees Fahrenheit may not be hot enough to clean dishes effectively. Turn your kitchen hot water tap on and wait until the water warms up completely. Fill a cup and measure the water temperature with a kitchen thermometer. If the water is less than 120 degrees Fahrenheit, turn your water heater up to 120 degrees.

Load the top rack properly. Place cups and bowls upside down in the rack and don't nest dishes because this can prevent water from reaching dishes. Don't overload the top rack. Instead, position each item so the dirty areas of the dishes will receive full contact with water spraying up from the main spray arm located beneath the top rack. Prevent items from hanging below the top rack, which could prevent the spray arm from rotating.

If you can find a hose that will fit the water line you can flush it out. But the most likely problem is that the filter that you bought was defective and the white particles are coming for it. If you can test it without the filter, to see if the water is clear or not, will tell you whether you should take the filter back and complain.

There usually is no filter, but the holes in the float valve can be pretty small. You should probably take the valve apart, but I can give no specific advice on this since there are lots of different kinds of float valves. It is possible that there is a screen where the float valve sticks through the bottom of the tank (but this is part of the float valve assembly) You also might have large piece of debris trapped in the shut-off valve. Turn the water off at the main to work on that one - but don't bother with this unless cleaning the float valve doesn't fix it.

You have some type of sediment setting in your ice, have you changed the filter recently? City water has all kinds of thing in it - ice is where you can really see the junk.

Water continues to pour into the overflow tube at end of cycle


I am also on a well and had what sounds like the same problem, so I contacted Toto tech support at techsupport@totousa.com.  They responded within 24 hours with information which enabled me to successfully resolve the problem.  
Basically, they provided a set of diagrams and instructions which enabled me to take apart the flush valve, clean it, and reassemble it.  It took less than 15 minutes, and cleared up the problem immediately.
By-the-way, those instructions also mention an annual cleaning of the flush valves, which might well prevent future problems.  A filter to remove debris from the water supply is probably a good idea, too.

Sounds like the plastic from the icemaker is chipping off the unit in the ice making process.

If your water is running clear except through the refrigerator that is my suggestions. Although normally the plastic color is blackish.

Particles floating in whirlpool filtered water.


okay - we have had this same problem for around 6 weeks - We called a service repairman to come out and he said that these "floaties" are harmless bacteria. We should disconnect the filter and flush the system by using 1 gallon of water a day (wasting it) after the chlorine in the water is allowed to build up again then the "floaties"- bacteria- will go away---- gross :-( We will see if it works---
