Yes there are two dump valves levers. One each transaxle. Location depends the model. Here is an example from a 915157.

It will not go forward it is only 1 year old and yes it starts my husband past away and I don't know what I am doing wrong

After the engine starts you must put the mower into gear so that it moves. Look for the gear shift lever or whatever.

Not sure, but i think the electronic clutch is not engaging when i push the control levers forward or backwards. the engine and the mower deck both run, but the mower will not move

The electric clutch is to power the blades/mower deck. There is a belt that drives the hydrostatic pumps to power the wheels. Make sure the Parking brake is OFF. Could be a belt, spring, idler pulley.
