Hi, Icemaker appears to be dispensing a small amount of water when it ejects the frozen ice cubes. The cubes that are freezing together appear to be at the end of the icemaker nearest to the front of the freezer. When I turn off the icemaker by raising the icemaker arm no additional cubes freeze together until I turn the icemaker back on.

Back in August 2020, I posted a thread that my water dispenser was not working. Jake recommended that I change the fill valve. I am one of the great procrastinators but have ordered the valve today (AppliancePartsPros). Since the fill valve is for both the water dispenser and the ice maker figured I should mention it.

Thank you

Here's that thread I helped you on back in Aug. 2020:

For the ice maker problem: Overtime the fill circuit in the ice maker wears and causes the ice maker to overfill itself, thus the overflow of water goes into the ice bin and makes the cubes stick.:)

Here's the ice maker for your model you can order:
