Cloudy Water Being Dispensed

Cloudy Water is dispensed from my Whirlpool refrigerator

If you recently replaced the water filter and the water appears cloudy, it could be because of air in the water line. This is normal when using the water dispenser for the first time or after replacing the filter. Flush the water system to help remove the air from the water line.

Flushing the system is needed every time the filter is changed or once the refrigerator is installed on the water supply line for the first time. Air in the water system may cause dripping at the dispenser, small/hollow ice cubes, or a cloudy appearance in the water quality.

Does the water filter need to be replaced?

To ensure a continual supply of cleaner, fresh-tasting drinking water, we recommend replacing your water filter every six months. Depending on your usage and water quality, it may need to be changed more frequently.

How is the water quality?

The quality of your ice and water will be only as good as the water supplied to your ice maker or water dispenser. Avoid connecting the ice maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals (such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to poor-quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided, ensure the water softener is operating properly and well-maintained.
