My "d" did the very same thing.The whirring noise you hear is the fan cooling the anti-freeze.Noises like that are normal.

I never bothered to take it back to dealer to address the issue. Waiting for my service time to come up so they can address the issue.
The sound is like, a little fan constantly running somewhere inside a closed area right above the exhaust manifold or in the area where catalytic converter is located(if the diesel has one).
