replaced AC coil now i get w hirring sound at low idle

i replaced my AC coil,heater core and blower motor this past week. i noticed that when the AC is on and when the defrost is on i get a whirring noise at low idle(like sitting at a light or stop sign).the second i hit the gas,in idle or in gear it goes away. it almost sounds like the blower wheel is rubbing but it does not do it with the fan/vent on only. it was cooler tonight and i noticed that when the compressor would cycle it would only whirr while the AC was on. i'm not sure if it's an airflow issue with the blend door or what? could be the refrigerant i guess.

i replaced the hose(with orifice),accumulator,compressor,evap coil and while i was down there i replaced the blower and heater core. i do hvac for a living so i'm not a complete dummy when it comes to hvac stuff. it's just hvac car stuff. i did a triple evac with my third evac on a vaccum for over an hour. any input would be helpful. thanks,
Jack


PS it also does this at every speed. 1-4/low-high

could it be a vacuum line not allowing a door to swing open all of the way? does the vacuum pressure become greater when rpm's go up?

It is probably a slight alignment on the squirrel cage.
