Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

this is common on these refrigerators, you need to replace you water chiller reservoir .its part # XXXXX on this diagram. these get stagnant water buildup on the inside of the plastic tubing. you can order this @ http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-reservoir-item-number-ap3886014.aspx its easy to replace and comes with instructions.thanks and best wishes , Bryan

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
would you suggest changing out the filter too, or is this reservoir located above the filter, on the way to the water dispenser.....
Expert:  Bryan replied 4 years ago.
The reservoir is past the filter so unless the filter has been in there for a long time changing the reservoir will take care of the foul taste. the water goes through the filter and into the reservoir and then to the dispenser. hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
