Remove the front panel and check both belts. Check the pump belt tension as described in the Service Manual (page 3-31). Remove both belts and check if they are glazey on the sides and/or leaving a black marks on your hands, then most likely they are worn out.

Turn the transmission pulley CW to check if it's locked up. If it is, then the transmission has to be replaced.

Here are the break down diagrams for the Maytag washer Model A5000

Pulled up this thread. I have a 21 year old A5000. It fills w/ water,but does not agitate. I pulled the front panel, but I do not see any belts. I reached underneath the front and got black from the belt on my fingers. I turned the belt and the transmission turned ( if the transmission is the part underneath the tub). Do I need a belt?

Hello,

Use the troubleshooting instructions from the previous post. If you will decide to replace a belt, then you have to replace both of them at the same time.

I just replaced both belts, and the pump is pumping but no agitating. I can smell rubber burning, but no smoke. The troubleshooting link will not open.

Yes! It turned. And the washer ran yesterday. I am at work now, and my wife calls me and says she smells burning rubber. I'm thinking its still the old rubber in the pulleys. Anyway, do you know the timing of events? ( fill, circulate, agitate)

It filled yesterday, then the motor turned the pump, & then it started to agitate. Is this correct? How long should the pump run before it begins to agitate?

What did you mean? Did it drain at that time?

Did you adjust the pump belt tension after you replaced the belts?

The belt adjust itself. It worked fine today on Permanent Press cycle.
