My Maytag refrigerator water dispenser is emitting foul tasting

Resolved Question:

My Maytag refrigerator water dispenser is emitting foul tasting and smelling water (like modeling clay). I've changed the filter (earlier than required) and it has no effect. The smell and taste is not a problem from any of our other faucets--just the refrigerator. (P.S. it if four years old).
