Yea I have when too but when running.  Mine is a loud buzzing more than a whine.

I took everything aparr and found a film on the in tank filter/pickup and also a good bit of sediment on the bottom near and under the pickup.  My guess is the whine is from either the restricted suction or the fuelpump overworking itself.  I cleaned all I could with gloves and a magnet but it started hissing again (better word for it hissing is) not a week later.  I need to drop and disassemble the tank to fix this issue I think.
