Re: My Electrolux EWF10741 washer spin is getting very...
Yes! it is highly likely that the water seal is bad and the bearing assembly is tight and the bearing is devoid of any lubrication making the spinning noisy.
Removing and reset the mechanism with proper lubrication could reduce the noise, but if the bearing is bad then it must replaced.

Based off the information you have provided you are hearing a loud screeching noise during the spin cycle on your Electrolux washer. You will hear a certain amount of motor whine during the spin cycle this is a normal operation of your appliance. -Matt
Sounds like the timer and control board are not communicating correctly and efficiently when in a normal cycle. You would need a professional to diagnose the control board and see if that is the only part needing replacement.
Check the leveling feet on your machine. With the machine turned off, and with a small carpenter's level, check to make sure the machine is level front to back and side to side. Then give the machine a shake in each direction to make sure that the feet (which are adjustable). If the machine wobbles-even a little bit- adjust the feet until all 4 feet are in contact with the floor and the machine fails to wobble when pushed. Rerun a load and see if the machine has stopped sending morse code... you can also make sure that the fill hoses aren't banging into the machine or the wall during the cycle. let me know if you have success!
Remove drum drive belt, and spin drum by hand, if there is any resistance,. or it feels rough or noisy, the the main bearigs have probably failed.
If it is o/k then check motor for worn or noisy bearings,
Please rate my solution.
If the machine is only noisy during the spin cycle then it is probably not the bearings, more likely it is probably the same issue I had. There is a large weight attached to the top of the drum, in my case it was loose. A simple fix, remove the lid and tighten the three bolts. The lid is removed using a T20 star key, you can buy these at places like Homebase or B&Q (about £7.50 for a set of 10 different sizes). There are two little plastic lugs on the side of the lid, the screws are behind these, remove them and then pull the lid forward and up. The weight is obvious, it looks like an odd shaped brick and is bolted down with three bolts. In my case the front one was loose.
