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 square key about 2 " long that fits in the slot on the axle and wheel and locks them together.. You probably didn't see it when putting tire back on and knocked it out. If you go back where you removed tire, you'll find it laying on the ground.

SOURCE: Rider won't move Hydrostatic
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

Does the tractor try to move or **** in any direction, if so you may want to check to see if the disk that controls the brakes is stuck, I've seen this many times.
