My brakes make a whoosh sound when applied
Start with the pads. It may just be the time to replace them .
Do you hear the sound with the engine off? If so will it go away after a few brake pedal pushes? If the above apply then your brake booster is leaking. The brake dragging is another problem though, could be a bad caliper.
