on my truck...yes.
but there are other things that cause whine,the pump could be going out,or the torque converter going out.i just figured for $ was worth
replacing on a chance that it may solve my tranny also had problems upshifting out of gears.
plus my fluid was realy bad,lots of metal shavings in my pan.
but with 162k miles....I have no whine in any gear since ive replaced those parts.

my govoner pressure solenoid....after pulling it and inspecting it,the little screen on the end was completely cloged up with gunk,im assuming it was starving for fluid....possibly causing the whining noise.
my tranny whined in all gears and was quiet in neutral and I drove the whine got louder.
