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

Husqvarna Model YTH24K48, won't move forward or reverse.


I will try to give you all information needed to fix the tractor. The first question is have you removed the rear wheels. The rear wheels have a square axle key that drive them. I have provided you with an image below showing the placement of the axle key.

If the axle key is in position, the next check to make is if the drive belt is still on. With the tractor on a level surfaced and the engine off look under the tractor at the drive belt. The belt should be free of slack and go around all of the pulleys.

If the belt is fine put the tractor in neutral and try to push it. If you can push the mower, you know the brake is not the problem. If you can not push the tractor the problem is likely a stuck brake. You will need to mover the break lever on the transaxle to see if it is sticking. If it is stuck you should be able to free it up by spraying a little WD-40 on the brake lever. Then work it back and forth.

Your tractor has a hydrostatic transaxle, I recommend you try to purge the air out of the system. The purging instructions can be found in your owner's manual and I have posed them below.

Next check the brake lever on the transaxle. If it has been sitting for a long period of time it might be stuck on. The lever is located on the right side of the tractor inside of the frame. I recommend working the lever back and forth to make sure it is moving freely.

When you are looking under the tractor, have someone move the shifter. When the shifter is moved, you should see the shifter on the transaxle move. If the shifter is properly attached, have someone start the tractor and let out on the brake. Now carefully look under the tractor at the Trans axle drive pulley. The drive pulley should be spinning. If the pulley is spinning, the problem is most likely a defective transaxle.

Mower wont move forward or backwards and makes a ticking noise when pushed.


Just a thought , maybe the key that locks the pulley to the input shaft on top of the transmission has sheared and the pulley is just spinning on the shaft or the key on the axle shaft that locks the wheel to the axle and that would allow the brakes not to work.

Most are sealed. Is your drive belt ok?

Paula, what are you calling the tension arm? What is this "arm" suppose to do? What is it that you are trying to accomplish? You may be taking the steering wheel off for nothing. I just can't visualize what you're looking to do, or what is wrong with the machine. You have a steering wheel, steering shaft ext, steering gear assy which has the steering shaft in it, a drag link, then a tie rod. I added a link to a similar type tractor for reference.

Brand new riding lawnmower, stop on hill, set park break, ready to go foward and when I push foward pedal and release break mower free whells backward. has 1 hr. on it. purged the trans. per instructions...


Sorry to hear about your problem...you aren't the only one having it. Sounds like a hydrostatic problem or a pulley freewheeling on a shaft somewhere. If you bought your tractor at Sears they might could help you---the husky and are the craftsman are the same. Husky uses a little better engine is all. Hope this helps.

Craftsman model 917.271814 will not go forward or reverse. Heard a "click" and mower stopped moving; engine and blade still running.


Check the drive belt that runs back to the transaxle,it sounds like it broke.If the belt is in the pulley check to see if the transaxle pulley is turning when the clutch is out.Also make sure both wheel axle keys are in the rear wheels.If all this checks out the transaxle may have broke,look underneath to see if it is broken there.

I HAVE HUSQVARNA 1548 RIDING MOWER HYDROSTATIC TRANS. IT WILL NOT GO FORWARD OR REVERSE. USED MANY TIMES NO PROBLEM AFTER SAT TWO WEEK WONT MOVE


You may have a drive belt that is worn or broken. Check the drive belt for slack condition see if it is not slipped off idler pully wheels or the belt tensioner. I had one that was streched out and was very slack on the pully wheels - I had it replaced with new one and was fine to go. There is a device on the back of your tractor to release the transaxle for manual pushing your tractor about with out starting the engine. Make sure the device is positioned correctly for running mode (engine) - There is a symbol on the back to help you know what to do. The tractor manual has good trouble shooting info and if you don't have one, try googling for it with the model number of your tractor - you will be able to download one free to your computer for viewing it.

Good luck!

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.
