Transmission fluid HOT too quick?

Hello all.

So I recently got an OBD wifi monitor to be able to read the essentials on my 2006 Ford F-250 6.0. I was reading my transmission fluid temp, and it was getting up there pretty quick. I did feel the truck a bit sluggish, but it got a bit better as ECT n OIL TEMP got hotter. Then my trans guage went to 280! I had read on another thread, that it should only reach 220 tops, and that's with towing. I am not towing anything. So I checked fluid and it seems to me full. Any idea on what the problem could be??? I don't wanna have to do a trans job. Big $$$$
