Kenmore DW stops at random times

Kenmore DW Model 66513242K900. Starts fine, runs awhile then stops and Start/Resume light blinks. If I open and close door, then push Start/Resume, it will begin again and sometimes complete the wash, other times it will stop and I have to restart it again. I've checked the door switch, seems to make very solid contact, checked wire nuts on electric connection. Not sure how to diagnose any further.

I've been thinking about this problem. It really sounds like a defective door switch. Very hard to check by looking at it. The switch runs about 15.00 and would be the logical place to start.

The other questionable part would be the control board but that's over 200.00 and we don't want to change that unless it's really the problem.
