If its like my ol snapper it has a disc drive. The drive disc sets vertical to the horizoltal axel disc or at a right angle. First gear starts out near the center, and as u shift the drive disc moves out creating the higher speeds. The drive disc has a hard rubber rim on the outside edge that runs against the axel disc. When this gets worn down, u don't go.
U need a new drive disc.

Turn the key and just get a whirring sound. Is it the solenoid? What can I do?

sounds like the gear broke on the starter and lock up the flywheel take off the little cover over the flywheel and you will see it you can buy the gear for about 10 bucks

My snapper mower only has two forward gears and no reverse. the clutch is worn. Could replacing the clutch fix the problem or is there something else going on with the transmission?

Typically if your clutch is worn, you would experience some slippage in all gears. If your forward gears work, but reverse does not, you should be looking at a potentially more serious problem.

Snapper Hi-Vac riding mower that won't start with starter

You may need a 300cca battery, an ignition switch or a solenoid to get things going again. I also would check to make sure the starter gear has not locked in the flywheel teeth; it will burn up the starter. You should be able to go to the snapper website and put your model of mower in and find the parts and diagrams you need.
Good Day.
