This is a non serviceable transmission. If it is moving slow it is most likely caused by a loose or worn belt. How old is belt? Has it been checked for cracks, smoothness, frays, shiny sides, make sure on the pulleys fully.

I guess to answer your questions. there is no dipstick for Transmission (hydrolics). There is a spot on the top of the transmission that can be accessed if transmission is removed, but it is most likely a belt or pulley issue.
