In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

There is a transmission bypass lever on the back of the mower, if the bypass is moved out of the drive position, it will not drive in either direction, and will be really easy to push.

If it's like mine the transmission is sealed and cannot be serviced. A local repair shop told me most likely the problem isn't with the transmission but rather the engine pulley is worn. He said if sand or debris gets between the belt and the pulley which has a definite "V" shape to it that it will wear down to a "U" shape. Now mine has a foot clutch on the left side so he had me pull back on the pedal which manually tightens the belt. I did this and it works like a champ. This winter I'll change the pulley.

Ahh a Craftsman, out of my league slightly as they are not brought in to the UK.
From what I gather these are a Sears product so it would have been delivered to you "Dry" .ie no oil or fuel etc. Have you checked the Hydrostatic Fluid level? What type of Oil did you put in there when you built the machine up? If you have used the wrong grade it would give these type of problems. Most Hydro units on lawn tractors (here in the UK anyway) often just run on Engine Oil not Transmission Oil but this should be stated in your instruction manuals for the machine

i had exmark hydros i was told to never wash them, the water does more damage than good. have you checked or changed your hydostatic oil and filter latley? if you have, when doing that you have to be very careful not to get any foriegn objects in the oil resevoir, dirt, grass clipings, anything will ruin the hydro pump.
