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.

I am having the same exact problem… my whirlpool fridge is only 3 years old and my lines are plastic tubing.. All I can think of is that it must be the plastic line that is making that gross plastic smell.. it comes out of my faucet smelling and tasting fine??? very disappointing when summer hits and your ice cubes make you gag…
