Your transmission is set up as a complex mechanical and fluid relay system.  It’s Input and output power mechanisms operate very much like a row of dominoes that are set up standing in a row. They push or pull the next part in line.  However If you remove, misaligne or change a domino, it either stops or they do not dwork the way you wanted.  In a transmission if a part fails things change, it operates differently, then that part affects the next part in line and so on.  This is called systemic failure, one system damage caused by another in line.

fIf the car computer determines that there is something wrong in the transmission it will turn on the CHECK ENGINE light and store a code.  It will then try to compensate by changing how the transmissions operates such as line pressure or shift points.   This is good in a way that it keeps the vehicle moving but bad in a way that it masks the symptoms sometimes in a way you may not notice until later. This causes people to delay having the transmission checked out immediately putting more stress on the transmissions other internal systems that possibly are still OK such as the pump, clutches or gears.  This systemically creates more wear and damage to other parts because of excess heat and friction that eventually will lead to transmission failure.
