It might be your AC compressor. When it makes this sound, turn the AC blower to O or OFF and see if it stops the noise. If it does, then see your local dealer or respected auto AC specialist.

Whining noise on my 2002 Tahoe 4wheel drive in the front

Whining when you start it up in park. Check the power steering fluid. If it starts after you are going down the road, check wheel bearings and front differential. If you live in Indiana/pothole city. You may want to check alignment.

I have a 2002 chevy surburban and it makes a whining noise.

the noise happens running down the road or parked? Is the car a four wheel drive? The alteanator can go bad and whine, the wheel bearings can go bad and whine, windows not fitting right can make a whine The altenator will stop whining if it's unplugged, if this fixes it the battery and the altenater need tested and a bad battery can make the altenator whine and it still be OK. Don't run the engine with the battery disconnected as this can blow alot of expensive stuff and the altenator.

Car is making a whining sound when I drive. Mainly when I turn and it seems to get worse, the longer I drive

It may be that your serpentine belt is slipping, causing the whining noise and when you turn, the power steering places a strain on the belt and will cause it to slip more. It may also be the power steering fluid is low, check the fluid and fill if needed.

Whining noise while accelerating in 1st gear

Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.
