MTD transmission help

I have a 2001 MTD (yard machine) with the auto. transmission. My problem is.... I try to put into forward gear, the mower will not move and act like it is locked up and belt will start to get real hot (burning up). If I go into neutral, it will act like it is in reverse and move fine in reverse direction. and When I put it into reverse it will run perfectly fine also in reverse direction. Is there a semi-quick fix to this or is the transmission junk??

I did buy this thing used, so I do not have any previous history on work done on unit.

It will push easy backwards when in neutral, but trying to push it forward, the tires are not turning.
