Question about Jenn-Air 21.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Filtered Ice and Water

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.

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.

The toilet fills slowly, 35 to 45 sec even though the service valve is wide open. I suspect that trash in line has clogged the filter (we had a recent problem with other fixtures after the water company...


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.

White debris in ice cubes


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 [email protected]  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.

Same problem with washer


remove the bottom panel 3 screws on bottom front ,
then you will see a large white (usually) filter access port ,
unscrew it and some water will empty so have rags or pan ready.
remove debris and see that the pump impeller is turning freely.
see that the float ball is loose and floating.
