Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
When I push in the "backwards" button, the feed dog doesn't move at all.
Make sure that the machine is in straight stitch forward and the stitch length is the highest level that it can go. If that doesn't make it go forward, you will have to use the old hair dryer trick. Take the top lid of the machine off and heat the inside with a heated hairdryer. Work the stitch length and the reverse until it frees up.

Sounds like the machine's age is causing the lubrication to get sticky.
Try changing the pattern by moving the pattern selector around.
Take out the bobbin and remove the thread and presser foot, raise the presser lever, set the pattern to zig zag, set the stitch length to maximum and run the machine at full speed. While it's running, repeatedly press the reverse lever all the way down. Run it for at least a few minutes.
