SOURCE: Power steering whine
I don't know if this will work, but if it is the same whinning sound that I have heard, all it takes is to buy some belt dressing and spray on the belts and pullys.

Most of the time the pump will make a whining noise when used. this is a warning for a bad malfunctioning pump. if there is no noise during a hard turn, it will most likely be an issue with the steering assembly. heres a step by step guide on checking the pump.
Step1 Check the fluid levels of your vehicle first. Add power steering fluid if necessary before you proceed any further. Step2 Connect the power steering pump and hose to the pressure gauge and shutoff valve. Fit the hose to the power steering pump correctly. Make sure the shutoff valve is open before test the power steering pump. Step3 Idle the engine while turning the steering wheel all the way to the right and all the way to the left to release any air from the power steering pump. Step4 Close the shutoff valve to check system pressure for about 5 seconds. If the shutoff valve is closed longer than 5 seconds, your power steering pump can overheat and this can cause damage to the pump itself. Step5 Compare the pressure reading against the manufacturer's specifications. If the pressure is within limits, your power steering pump is working correctly and you're ready to roll. Step6 Troubleshoot if the pressure reading is not the same as the manufacturers specifications. Consult the manual for your vehicle or for your power steering pump (if you just installed a new one) to determine the source of any further problems.

that is signs of a leak
most likely cause is the rack
first start by draining the pump by removing the lower hose that is attached with a hose clamp
then refill and bleed
I suspect the foaming will return within a day
