You already did Distributed Cache troubleshooting and Get-CacheClusterHealth reports healthy (score 10).



This is a known bug in AppFabric 1.1 Caching Services which is an essential part of SharePoint and responsible for issueing tokens. If this component fails, we get an access denied error as no token is issued.



Please update at least to AppFabric Caching Service 1.1 CU3 or higher. It needs to be patched separately from SharePoint Service Pack's / CU's. App Fabric 1.1 is part of SharePoint 2013.

You can find AppFabric 1.1 CU5 here:
