If you are unable to connect to your iCloud account using these settings and the normal password, you may want to try generating an app-specific password as show here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204397

Two-Factor Authentication has to be turned on in order to generate an app-specific password. Once you are finished you can turn it back off.
