  Poor switch contacts. Voltage drop test would find that right away, but you did say that you bypassed the lid switch while testing with cabinet removed so what's up with that?

That's true so not real sure either. I'll run a few loads this weekend and see what happens.

Well the second load didnt go. The first load was just a comforter and did fine. This second load was a medium sized load that had a few sweatshirts and baseball pants. It was to heavy and causing the clutch to slip. If I pulled a couple of sweatshirts out it would spin just fine which I think confirms that the clutch is slipping. The clutch though was the first thing I replaced and is brand new. Is there a way to tighten it down to keep it from slipping?

Was that a F.S.P factory clutch? It makes a difference.
