Question about 2001 Acura MDX
Onset was after a main oil seal replacement and worsened after motor mount replacement by the dealer. Whine is heard beginning at 20 mph and gets louder while accelerating and cruise. Not heard while in neutral or park.
If it was front main seal, the belts all had to come off to acess this..as a result the timing belt may have been replaced by them and put on too tight which will whine as the engine runs..this will get less intense as the new belt gets stretched and will be gone within a few hundred miles..as long as the belt was installed to specs there should be no problem other than a noise which shouldnt last long repost if it keeps on or something else happens..good luck..

You may have a bad idler pulley. Locate it, spray a lubricant (WD-40) behind it. You don't want to get it on the belt surface. If the noise goes away, you have found the problem.
