4R100 Bypass valve - what causes it to fail?

I was changing my fluids again, and the bypass is stuck open. I'm about to remove it to check out why it's not working, but with such a simple thing - what kills them?

It's actually been like this for a while, but the temps never get too high - so I let it go.

No restrictions in the cooler, but the tranny was cold (80+F outside, however).

Couldn't edit my thread.....but I just removed it and cleaned it. Apparently the ball was stuck for some reason - back in it goes.
