This symptom is cause most often by the following.

Worn and slipping drive belt which is separate from the blade/deck drive belt.(replace the belt).
by-pass lever (rod) not fully engaged (push it all the way in)
travel pedal or linkage is faulty or out of adjustment ( take to dealer)
Transaxle is faulty (take to dealer)
