Question 2003 7.3 only 72,000 mi. had to put in a new tranny

I bought the truck brand new and have taken care of it. When they opened mine up they found (copied from receipt): direct clutch and forward clutch drums and clutches worn and hanging up on upshifts. Has this been an issue???

Being a transmission builder, I don't understand that statement.
Being burnt or worn from low fluid is a common complaint.

I had it serviced at 60,000 and nothing was said about the fluid. I checked the fluid the week before and it looked fine (pinkish) and didn't smell burnt. The comment from the test drive says: "upshift concerns on 2-3 and 3-4 shifts suspect possible accumulator or valve body concerns remove trans pan and inspected no issues with either found." At this point contacted the ford helpline and was directed to obtain permission to remove and tear trans down.
Have you ever had where you just don't know what the problem is?
Thanks for your help

Mine was shifting late and hard into high gear and then around 35 to 40 when I would accelerate than let off and coast it felt like it wasn't getting fuel?. They couldn't figure out what was wrong so they put in a new (reman) one. I came on here to see if this was an issue with the 4R100 or if I just got a bad truck from the start. 72,000 seems too early to have to replace a tranny.
