I have a whirlpool side by side that has floaties in the water, thinking I need to replace the tube reservoir currently installed.  Does anyone have the service manual?

model: ED5FHEXNS00

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply.  The floaties were coming in through the water line... lots of them.  Ice looked much better, few or none seen. The ice maker looks clean, no visible mold.

Just to investigate and see how the reservoir ran, I pulled the fridge out and took a look underneath.  On a whim I disconnected the water from the spigot, and  opened the tap into a glass.  It was gross.  The water was cloudy and there were lots of flakes of material in it.  I purged about 30 gallons and it has seemed to clear up.  After reconnecting the fridge, I purged another 4 gallons from the water dispenser and things are back to normal.

Quick question:

  • What could have caused this?  Perhaps the valve in my spigot is going bad?  Apt and fridge are 5 years old, and the spigot drips slightly when fully closed.
  • How could the material make it past the filter and into the water dispenser?
  • Do I need to replace any parts of the fridge after this happens?

In case I do need to replace the reservoir or something else does, I would like to see if you guys have the service manual available.

Thanks

Wes

Yes they were white... somewhat translucent and shaped like tiny flakes.

Hey guys, just an update. I filled up a glass of water today and noticed the flakes are back.

Still no idea what is causing this. Have you guys seen this before?

RegUS, sorry didn't see your post about not finding the manual.
