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.

This could be from sediment that forms on the inside of the tubing from the filter through the reservoir in the refrigerator and to the water dispenser. I had this happen a while back. I had to replace the tubing and water reservior. It solved the problem.

Hello. I recently changed my water filter (puresource2) on a side by side. The water coming out now is cloudy. It looks like little white particles floating in the glass. I didn't notice it that...


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.

You may need to replace the water reservoir located behind the crisper. They are known to flake and cause the problem you describe. They are usually replaced with a coil of water line instead of one larger reservoir to stop the problem.

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.

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---
