Breaks go to floor. Loud whooshing sound at pedal. No fluid leaks. Master cylinder full.

If the brakes go to the floor -- there is either air in the lines for some reason, or you could have a master cylinder concern, where it is leaking fluid into the power brake booster...or just generally failing. Obviously don't drive the vehicle until it is tested and repaired!
