LEXUS LS 430 TRANSMISSION PROBLEM

2004 Lexus LS 430 • V8 2WD Automatic • 150,000 miles

2004 Lexus LS 430 w 150000 miles. 6 speed won't shift from 3 Rd to 4th gear. Brought to Lexus dealership. Was told there was metal in pan and needed a new transmission. I know that all pans have some metal in them. When I told this to dealer rep he said that maybe they could do a valve body (?) Job. What is that? Do I not need a transmission?

Could be just a shifting solenoid hanging up or maybe a problem with the valvebody which is the heart of the transmission
