If the converter on your F 150 has a drain plug, (not all do ) it will be located on the front of the converter, remove the inspection place on the bottom of the transmission and tap the engine over 360 degrees and see if your converter has the plug, if it dose then it can be removed and the converter will drain.
The flywheel bolts to the back side of the transmission and the converter bolts to it. Under the truck at the front of the transmission at the bottom you will see the inspection plate. remove it and bump the engine over , if your converter has a drain which some do , you will see it sticking though a hole in the flywheel. All you need to do is unscrew it and it come right out.
If the transmission is full and you only removed 5 quart then that may very well be. Did you have a problem before you replaced the oil?
Okay there is a procedure to refill this transmission . Have a look at the steps in the link below to be sure you have the correct amount of fluid in the transmission.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Fluid%20check%20Apr%2017.pdf

There is no drain plug on this transmission, you have to remove the pan to drain the fluid.
I explained that this morning, if the converter has the drain plug you can drain it from there. It usually easier on these newer transmission to have the transmission flushed to assure you remove 100% of all the old fluid.
There are no picture of the torque converter. If you not finding it then its likely you do not have a drain for it. I would consider have a transmission flush done. That is the correct way to remove 100% of all the fluid.
The only way to flush it complete is with a transmission flush machine.
If you want to remove 100 % of the fluid a flush is the best way to do this.
