whining noise

2008 328i has a whining noise when the car is taking off. The transmission fluid level is adequate and there is no leak from hoses. The noise is present even when the steering wheel is positioned straight and untouched. However, when the car is at standing still and the steering wheel is turned towards the right and towards the left, I then hear some whinning noise.
Does the power steering make noise despite the steering wheel not not turned to either direction

It can. Check power steering fluid level first. Make sure it's at correct level before you continue for further diagnosing.
