Particles in Water - Cloudy Water - Refrigerator

Possible Solutions

Does your water filter need to be replaced?

It is recommended that the water filter be replaced every six months when the indicator light comes on or as needed.  A clogged water filter can cause several issues, including particles in the water.  Replacing your water filter regularly will help reduce the number of containments in the water supply. If there are white particles in the water, this is typically caused by calcium or mineral buildup in the water line or pipes. Our filters remove specific contaminants, and calcium and minerals are not included.

Was the water system flushed after filter installation or replacement?

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