Strange whining noise

I driving a 2001 Honda Prelude automatic w/ 55,000 miles. It makes a whining noise every time I slow down by letting off the gas (not applying the brake.) I don’t hear it when accelerating or on the gas. It’s coming from the front of the car. It’s a whining/winding noise, EEEeeeeeeee sound, not loud, but audible. Any idea what could be the problem?

Any idea, anyone?
