When you push the ice paddle to dispense ice, do you hear anything? Also, does the unit still dispense water normally?

you can hear it trying to dispense. It freezes the ice but will not dump. Yes, the water is fine.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 3 months ago

If you can hear it trying to dispenser, that means the auger motor is working and all the electronics are working so that's great. After you try to dispenser for 10 seconds or so, open up the door and look down inside the ice chute on the back of the dispenser. Is the ice chute filled with ice on the door?

No, the ice doesn't dump into the chute.
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 3 months ago

OK so that means there is a problem with the bucket itself. Remove the bucket completely and dump the ice into a bowl. Run the bucket under hot water and thaw everything out in the head of the bucket. Dry the bucket and put the ice back in. Re-install the bucket and see if the ice will dispense now. If it still won't, you need a new ice bucket. The part number is ***** for the new bucket.
