Question about Ford Edge
Has about 75000 miles on it. left front tire started to whine a few days ago, when turning steering wheel to the left get slight vibration
If you swerve the car back and forth and the sound dissapeers when swerving to the left( reducing the weight on front left tire) this could indicate a wheel bearing problem

Yes, and it probably is your wheel bearing. Hearing a sound like a chain dragging is classic. You may also hear a clicking noise or chain dragging noise when turning to the left or right.
Look under the car and see if the rubber boots that surround the axle near the tires are cracked and leaking grease. If so, it is almost a certainty that the bearings are bad as you have lost grease and thus lubrication to the bearings.

Testimonial: "Thanks I been busy I'll check it out this weekend and get back to you."
I just had the same issue with a 1999 2500HD and the vibration got worse above 50 mph. Problem was resolved with a new driveshaft. Old one (aluminum) was badly out of true and the problem didn't really occur until I had the U joints changed - then bent driveshaft vibration was noticeable. New driveshaft resolved issue.

SOURCE: car has about 60,000 miles
Assuming tires were properly balanced you may wish to have an inspection of your front end which includes shocks/struts, suspension components like tie rods and stabilizer links, they can also check for camber/caster in your tires (tires either angled inwards/outwards slightly), You can get an alignment done rather cheaply as well and that should correct your problem provided all items listed are in good working condition. Good luck
