Sounds like a bearing in the transmission is failing. I would drain the trans pan and check for metal pieces in the bottom of the pan that normally don't belong there. Normal wear is a gray coating of material in the pan.

You have a failure in the transmission or the shift solenoids or wiring to them or the TCM. I would get the Transmission Control Module (TCM) tested for fault codes first. Did you have a check engine light come on?

Does the sound go faster when your ford goes faster and slows down when you slow down? If so may be your front wheel bearings. Need more info.
