Sounds like your transmission is shot if its a geared mower. If its a belt driven hydrostatic mower the belt is slipping and needs to be replaced.

Yardman riding mower no reverse forward jerking motion


It sounds like you either have a lose belt that is slipping or the fluid in the transaxle is low, or the transaxle is going bad, if it is a hydrostatic transaxle, drain and replace the fluid first, if that fails, you may have a bad seal in the pump or a worn gear

Mower slips in and out of forward gear but rides perfect in reverse;What do I need to adjust?


Reverse is a different gear set than forward gears. Sounds like forward gear set has a broken tooth. Not an easy fix.

Drive belt slips on Husqvarna YTH21K46 riding lawnmower, installed new drive belt and it slips. mower is 2 years old


I had this same issue. New belts and correct routing did not solve the problem. The issue with my mower was the tabs that come off the frame that you bolt the transaxle (the drive for the rear wheels and axle) had almost completely torn/cracked away. This allowed the transaxle to tilt forward under a load and slip the belt off the rear drive pulley. You see no mention of this at the dealer or company sights. The tabs are so thin this is going to happen, in my opinion, in time. I reinforced this area with 1/4 inch angle iron and have had no further belt issue.

After I apply the brake going downhill, etc., the mower jerks severely and repetitively in forward gear like the transaxle is slipping and catching. Any ideas why?


I believe when you push in the brake you remove tension from the drive belt and engine. Their is a spring that pushes back on the brake pulley and your peddle. check this for wear
