Even though the door switch seems good,jump it out and run the dryer to verify it is not intermittent.

Good question. Does unit start and again immediately after it shuts down?

JWWebster:
If it still does it after cleaning the sensors I would check the thermistor for continuity.

Good call JW.

I've cleaned all sensors and run it with wet clothes in it.  It will run for a few seconds then shutoff or held down or jumped to override the switch it will run for about 30 seconds before shutting off and not turning back on.  It will start a few times for a few seconds then shutoff and won't start at all for a bit.  I have not checked with voltage meter, won't have one for a couple days. Thanks a ton for the suggestions!
