Rotating Whining Noise

2016 Silverado, when driving the truck and pressing the gas pedal I hear a faint high pitch noise that comes near the drivers side door either underneath or in the dash, hard to pinpoint. The sound goes away when I release the pedal as well. Anyone else experience it? Its annoying as sometimes the radio cant drown it out

Yes, I have the same problem on my new 2017 Siverado 1500. High pitched whine comes on at around 60 mph and gets worse the faster I go. At 75 mph its so loud it drowns out the radio. I have been to the Dealer about it. and getting the run around from the mechanics. And guess what the Service Advisor told me. He said, "Well, thats over the speed limit so you probably shouldn't be driving that fast anyway"! Wow....really? So, the new 2017 Chevy Silverado with a 5.3L V8 engine shouldn't be driven over 60 mph!

Ok...got that in quote! Wow, what a disappointment.

On another note, there is a posting in another forum, (2016 whining noise) from a guy that says the issue is in the transfer case. He got his replaced and it fixed the problem. I am pursuing that now, but its going to be a battle. If I can't get relief, I will just trade this thing off for another brand.

Anyone found a solution for this??? I have a 2016 and it only does it when in 4WD but it drives me absolutely insane! I may have dealer check as I can absolutely replicate it so it cant be denied, and the old "that's normal" aint going to cut it!

Ok My dealer has been trying to help me with this which I do appreciate. They did take it in and replaced the differential(ring and Pinion) and they said they verified that it had excessive run-out.  I was driving a 2019 Yukon as a loaner until mine was fixed and I noticed the same noise between 60-80 mph although it was not as pronounced.  I received my 2018 Yukon back from the dealer and the same noise is still there and as loud as it ever was.  The replacement of the differential(ring and pinion) did not fix the problem.  I did tell them the loaner has the same issue so I wonder if they have to disclose this prior to selling that vehicle?   I am now working with the owner of the dealership on trading my 3-month-old Yukon for another viable option.  I just can't get over the annoying whining noise for a 50K plus vehicle.  Cadillac/GMC/Chevy Truck and SUV bulletin regarding the same issue they had recalled for 2014-2016 products with a "high speed whining noise"  It was a multiple step guide to fix this is which started with the Ring and Pinion then the drive shaft then the rear axle. See the link below on the bulletin.

Video of whining/ringing noise, listen for it behind the road noise. At 13 seconds in the accelerator hits 77 mph to cruise.
