Constant whining noise when running or only when you're cranking it? I've had multiple starter issues over the years but don't ever remember one making the whining noise you mentioned. Doesn't mean thats not your problem, just that I've never heard that kind of noise out of my starters. I'm thinking though that if the wheel in the starter continously turns since its attached to the flywheel, it could be possible that its going out.
