Where is the switch, how do I get to it, and how hard is it to replace?

Before ordering a new LID SWITCH ASSY---try tightening both of those screws---test the spin cycle again.

Slow spin speeds
Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)
And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.
The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:
HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load
HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon
Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.
Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

It looks like you may be on to something. The screws on the lid, which looked like they were tight, required a couple of turns to tighten down. Once they were tightened, I could hear a loud, discernible "click" when I opened and closed the lid. The washer is running now, and seems to be working OK. I'll know for sure after a few more loads, but so far so good...
