I'm sorry paullydoo1, but I don't know much about transmissions in general. I'm not even sure if the transmission fluid pump is electrical or mechanical (probably mechanical), but I've heard both types of pumps whine when they were old or on their way out. I would try to get info from different transmission shops around town if I were you. Whether I found any useful information or not, I would probably still just keep on driving it as the whine may not be that big of a deal.
