Cloudy ATF in PS resevoir

Have a whine from the steering, particularly when parking. Read up on relevant threads here, checked that ATF Fluid level is accurate and it is; so I've drained the resevoir of fairly cloudy and darkish fluid and replaced with clean Dexron III
Drove a bit, checked the fluid and it is again somewhat cloudy and still whines at low speed.
Do I need to keep draining and refilling with clean ATF until the fluid remains clear? OR is it normal to be cloudy after running through the PS this the beginning of the end of the pump...only
62K miles???
