refrigerator water tastes funny

I have a 2 year old Whirlpool side by side fridge/freezer. The water started tasting and smelling bad a couple of weeks ago. I changed the filter, flushed water through the new filter and the smell and taste were gone. I went back a couple of hours later to get more water and the smell and taste were back. I flusehd more water through it, the smell and taste went away. Went back a couple hours later, the smell and taste were back. I changed the filter a second time but I'm still having the same problem. The ice seems to be fine - if I let some ice cubes melt and then drink the water, it doesn't taste or smell bad.
