Sounds like the safety switch in the seat is bad or disconnected. Look under seat to see if anything is unplugged.

Hi, W/D here.
Check the battery terminals for corrosion, and make sure that the connections are shiny, bright and tight. Follow the cables from the battery, and disconnect and clean each terminal as needed. Check the voltage in the battery as it sits. If you do not have a volt meter, any auto parts store can check it for you. They can also put a load test on it to determine if the battery is capable of taking a charge. It sounds like you had just enough battery to start the mower, but not enough to sustain it, but the problem may be elsewhere. You cannot move further until the battery is proven good, or replaced.
Provided that you have a good battery and all connections are secured and cleaned, with the key on, try to bypass the solenoid with a heavy insulated wire jumper between the large terminals. If the starter turns over, the solenoid or the start switch is bad. You can test the start switch for continuity with a meter, or a cheap automotive tester.
If all of the above checks out, the problem lies in the charging system.
Best regards, and please post back with your findings, --W/D--
