First replace the drive belt. (1/2 x 82-1/4) and the V-idler pulley if plastic, Reverse doesn't load the belt as much as forward drive. The reason I suggest replacing the V-idler too is that the plastic wears heavy and the drive belt bottoms out causing slippage.

Then if it doesn't drive forward then you most likely have a bad transmission.

Hi
There is a pin in the back by the hitch - make sure it is pushed in. If it is pushed in then check to see if there are any oil leaks under it.

SOURCE: Craftsman Transmission problem

Some of these tractors have a friction wheel that is driven off of a flat wheel on the bottom of the engine drive shaft. The rubber ring on this friction wheel could be worn out, or it could be out of adjustment.

SOURCE: Loss of drive in a Craftsman Lawn tractor

I also have a Craftsman tractor with the same problem. Sears repairman said it needed a new transmission and it would cost $1,400 to install. A new one is about $1,000. Anyway, if you remove the battery and the battery tray under the seat it will expose the transmission fill hole (hex). I opened the top and it looked empty. I had a bottle of 90 weight gear oil in my shop and filled the transmission to the top. I have not had any problems with it since. $4.00 bottle of oil verses a new tractor is worth a try.

Stalls when I push the pedal in reverse, going forward no issues


Hi Dan:
Some of these tractors have a safety interlock on the ignition/start switch that prevents you going in reverse when the mower is engaged.
Check the switch to see if there is a position one click to the left.
If there is, give it a try.

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.

Craftsman 21 hp lawntractor model 917.289240 will no go in reverse.


If this is a hydro unit and it runs ok forward there should be no other reason other than linkage adjustment for it not to run in reverse, for safety reasons they are normally adjusted to run slower in reverse
