Hey Brad. Thanks

If the new pump is making a whining noise then I would get it warrantied for a new pump. If it's an aftermarket pump I would suggest getting a OEM pump to eliminate any issues with aftermarket low quality pumps.. There is nothing else in the tank that would make that noise besides a bad pump.
