SOURCE: lawn tractor won't move when put into gear

First, check the tension of the drive belt. There should be an idler pulley which is spring loaded that creates the tension. When you push the clutch in, it will release the tension. Also, check to see if the rear wheel hubs have set screws which lock them onto the axle Make sure they are tight.

SOURCE: Lawn tractor forward movement problem

Check the adjustment from the lever to the transaxle, if the linkage is ok the transaxle may be suffering from age and has leaking internal seals.

SOURCE: craftsman lawn tractor automatic transmission

Just like motor vehicles when transmission gets stuck on a particular place without moving forward or backward it is a sign of a jam in one of the transmission levers. This is usually caused by lack of transmission fluid in the gears.When the fluid or grease depending on what your unit uses gets low the levers begin to grind against one another and therefore bring about such problems as you are facing. Although there is an off chance that the problem could also be from the automatic selector in this case the damage might not be so much probably an electrical fault.
First get an expert to check the auto selector if it is in good shape. If it is then i am afraid the problem is from the transmission levers.
Hope this insight has been helpful?

Craftsman lawn tractor will not move


There are a few things to look a. The belt, is it slipping or loose? Check and small idler pulleys from the drive belt to the engine. The large pully on the transmission is keyed to the shaft. If either the key is sheared or the shaft worn enough, the shaft will spin but not turn the pulley under load. Also note that the axles are keyed to the rear wheels. A sheared key there will cause it to not move also. You should see the axle turning freely inside the wheel if this is the case. Here is a parts diagram so you at lease have an idea of the areas to check.

Hydrostatic Transmission Failure


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.

Loss of drive in a Craftsman Lawn tractor


I also have a Craftsman tractor with the same problem. Sears repairman said it needed a new transmission and it would cost $1,400 to install. A new one is about $1,000. Anyway, if you remove the battery and the battery tray under the seat it will expose the transmission fill hole (hex). I opened the top and it looked empty. I had a bottle of 90 weight gear oil in my shop and filled the transmission to the top. I have not had any problems with it since. $4.00 bottle of oil verses a new tractor is worth a try.
