I have answered,this similar question,and have given advice,what i would do. If you are a just a week end doer, i would not attempt to try to make your own repairs. This Hydrostatic Transaxle,is quite a complicated piece,You will need a profession,service technician to work on this. It has so many bearings,gears and a lot of small parts. This sound like,a gear is slipping,when the tractor is put in gear and under a load. It could be as simple as servicing,the Transaxle. I have seen this problem,when the Transaxle had air trapped in it. Your Owner's Manual,explains what to do,if there is air in the transaxle. You have to move the tractor about five in both directions. This usually,takes care of the problem. This occurs,sometimes after servicing the Transaxle. There is something thing you can do,check,for leaks of oil around the axles and or,at the Transaxle it self. It could be low on transmission oil. If this is the case,you will need to replace the seals. Unless,you know what your doing,i wouldn't attempt to dissemble the Transaxle assembly. Instead,call Sears for a repair service or call any lawn mower shop,that does this kind of repair.Sincerely,Brad Locke

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

SOURCE: Mower will not free wheel
Are you trying to push it? If that is the case, you have to disengage the transmission from the back. There is a linkage that sticks out the back panel and you have to pull and hook it. Then your mower will push freely. Remember to unhook and push in when you go to drive it.
