Question about 2001 Volvo S60
According to Volvo the Transmission fluid change interval is every 52,500 for heavy use vehicles ie. towing.
In reality you should change it every 30,000 or so depending on your driving. By 30k it starts to varnish and discolor. There are several Volvo dedicated websites that give you the process if your mechanically inclined v70r.com is currently my favorite. Brickboard.com is also a good one.
This site has a few write ups on various things and operations for flushing.
Just be aware that as in the beginning of the write up you have a P2 car and the fluid flow is reversed. This means you will need to take off the lower cooler hose on the radiator. Yours will be held on by a differant clip as well. You will need to press in on the two green tabs while rotating and pulling the hose out.
Hope this helps.
