Default Water tastes like freezer burn
Model Number: ED0GTQXKQ04   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years

The water in the door of my 6 year old fridge began tasting like freezer burn about 6 months ago. Ice from the same fridge tastes fine. Any ideas what could cause this and what can be done about it?

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,

How old is the water filter?

How often do use the water dispenser?

Inspect the water reservoir (#4 on the diagram).

Here are the break down diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL ED0GTQXKQ04 | AppliancePartsPros.com
