You need to flush carefully afterwards with lots of water....

I got the same problem. 
I could imagine that dishwasher detergent might do a better job than chlorine. This dishwash detergent has chemicals that break down organic matter from the algees or bacteries living in these tanks. 
Sodium Metasilicate is used by vegie Restaurants to clean their dishwashers. 
I guess regular dishwash detergent will do the job too. 
Its a similar job like cleaning the watermaker membranes chemically.

Dear Amel Group,

this my first topic and it seems to be a difficult one.
I want and need to clean all off the water tank compartments.
But the access specially to the 
forward compartment seems to be nearly impossible.

For the aft compartment you can carefully slide the fridge forward (after loosening a few screws and the water hoses) and take it out.
But I see no solution for the forward compartment.
How is it working?

I’m asking you for your experiences. I am sure some of you cleaned the water tanks already ;-).

Thanks a lot for your help.
Best regards
