Post late model auto trans question

the wife's driver just lost its tranny. will go but won't shift out of first. when you accelerate to @ 15 mph, it goes into a neutral like state with the engine just revving. everything else id ok. fluid level is good. fluid is changed every 30-40k miles. are the bands gone or in need of adjustment or what ??????? (pulling hair out) guess it's of to the tranny shop monday morning. Any suggestions or ideas? oh yeah, 94 ford taurus, 3.8 l V-6, don't know what trans. never had any trouble except when the speedo gear wore out and it wouldn't shift right but it would shift.....

I'm not sure about the '94 but the local trans guy told me , when I was looking at a Taurus with a bad tranny, that they have a pretty high failure rate.
