Have you tried replacing the tensener pulling, it has a bearing inside it that should allow the roller to spin. They are not very expensive.

1. Suspect the belt is loose. Tighten it or use belt dressing. 2. Bearings are worn out on the alternator. Replace the alternator. 3. Poor workmanship on a rebuilt alternator. Replace the alternator.

Why would your car still be whining after the power steering pump is replaced?

One source of whining could be many things but the first that comes to my mind is the Alternator. The CV joints could possibly make this noise too but I would personally consult a mechanic about this. any motor attached to the engine could be a cause but I would take it to a mechanic: alternator, compressor, water pump, etc.
