Why does the ice and water in my Kenmore side by side taste dusty?

I have a Kenmore side by side 106.57862801 with a Pur water filter system. The ice and water were tasting dusty so I replaced the $50 filter...It still tastes dusty. I purged the first 2 gallons after replacing the filter. The ice was also pitched. We are 10 days past the one year warranty and I called Sears and they were not able to help as it was 10 days out of warranty. This has been an ongoing issue for several months. We are on our third filter. The first one came with the fridge and water tasted fine. The second one went in in August and it tasted fine till December when it started to taste dusty...the filter indicator on the dispenser did not indicate it needed to be changed at that time...I changed the filter in January and the water and ice flavor did not improve... The fridge has not been moved and there is not any rotting food inside. Is there something wrong internally or do we simply have a bad filter?
