What would cause my car to whine loudly and slip gears while driving? (1 answer)

I didn't hear the noise until very suddenly about halfway through the day, but then there was no way to not notice the loud whining and the gears slipping. I assume this is a transmission issue of course, but I'm hoping it could be something that I may be able to fix myself. Thank you.
