Question and Answers

Q:

Ice and water tastes moldy

A:

I see that you already got some advice on replacing those water lines through that previous thread that Anna T. posted in the above response.

If you live in the city and have a chlorinated water supply, then there is a chance that you may be able to fix this water problem without replacing any water lines. I recommend that you try this fix first if you have chlorinated city water:

Remove the filter from the housing at the bottom of your refrigerator (in the bottom front grill). There is an automatic bypass in that system. You can use the water and the ice maker without that filter installed in the housing. The system will not leak water with that filter removed. Run a couple of glasses of water through that dispenser. Continue to use the water dispenser for a couple of weeks with that filter removed. If you have a condition where there are harmless cysts in that water system, the chlorinated water will kill those cysts and eliminate that bad taste.

There is no guarantee that this fix will work but it would be a much easier fix than replacing water lines.

If that tactic does not work then you will probably need to replace the water supply line as described in that previous answer.

If you need more help, let us know.

I offered that suggestion about the filter since it is a proven fix in some situations where chlorinated water is used. It may not work in your situation but it is worth a try before you replace any water line. Based on the amount of debris and the apparent breakdown of that water tubing that you are describing, it is likely that you will need to replace that water supply line even if the other fix helps remove that moldy taste. That control board in the refrigerator does monitor the water usage as well as the time. That is why the filter light is coming on after 3 months. You may be able to leave that grey 4' hose in place if it is still in good shape when you replace that water line. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.
