Icemaker is not dumping all cubes. It will work well for 6 or 7 cycles, then will not drop the 4 cubes closest to the door. The next fill is too much and drips into the ice bin causing the ice to clump. Have verified that both the refrigerator and the ice maker itself are level. Valve and icemaker have been replaced. Any help would be appreciated!

I can only think of two things, too much water entering the tray resulting in too large of cubes or the tray is no longer smooth enough to separate from the ice easily. The latter was common with older flex-tray icemaker designs especially in areas with hard water.

Are the 'sticky' cubes any larger than the ones that drop? If not, the icemaker might need to be replaced as the cube tray is not available separately from the whole unit.
