haloalkanes are slightly soluble in water , to dissolve it require energy to overcome the attraction between haloalkane molecule and break hydrogen bond between water molecule . 
less energy is released when new are attraction are setup between haloalkanes and water molecule , 
these are not strong as orginal hydrogen bonds in water , as a result in water their solubility is very low

the molecules of water are held together by H bonds . Since the new forces of attraction between water and alkyl halide molecules are weaker than the forces of attraction already existing between alkyl halide - alkyl halide molecules and water - water molecules . Thus alkyl halide are immiscible with water .

since water is a polar solvent having high value of dielectric constant,the polar compounds are fairly soluble in water.alkyl halides are polar but cannot form hydrogen bonds with water.
