Question about Garden
My brand new 'out of the box' mower will not move. The transmission will not engage in forward or reverse. The pedal moves freely and will not spring back when you take your foot off it.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

SOURCE: Suddenly stopped driving...
Check for a worn belt first.Then check the linkage. Next jack the unit up and try to run it forward and reverse with the engine running.If there is any movement at all in either direction then check the fluid level to see if it is up to the top.The worst case is the hydro. unit has a stuck check valve or something broken inside.Hope some of this helps. donnyb60

Check to see if any oil leaks between rear wheels where the tractor was parked. Also make sure hydrostatic disengage lever, at rear of tractor by hitch, has to be pushed in.

Does it have gears or a hydrostatic (automatic) transmission?
If it's a gear model, sounds like a loose drive belt.
If it's hydrostatic, it could be a belt problem or a problem inside the transmission. If it's a tranmission problem, this is not good. Many of the transmissions on riding lawn mowers are not serviceable - they are just replaced.
