If there is no problem with the drive belt getting power to the transmission, then the transmission is failing.

My John Deere rinding lawn mower won't go forword or backwards


John Deere mowers, for the most part, use hydrostatic transmissions. These use an oil of some type (they vary by model) in the transaxle to provide hydraulic pressure to move the tractor. Older tractors will eventually experience some oil leakage over time due to seal wear. If the level gets too low, then you fail to move. Check the oil level in the transaxle. The location of the reservoir varies from model to model. If it is low, after determining the correct oil to use, fill to proper level. Then, start the tractor and work the hydrostatic drive lever forward and backward slowly and continuously until you get full speed operations in both forward and reverse. This can take a few minutes until all the air has been purged from the system.

Depress drive pedal forward or reverse, tractor will not move


Assume it's a hydrostatic transmission - most probably the drive belt has come off or broken. Be sure to replace it with a Kevlar belt as changing the belt isn't easy and you don't want to have to repeat the process too soon.

Riding mower will not move forward or backward


Assuming the engine is running and sounds good, you need to check the drive belt. With the engine OFF, make sure the topmost belt which goes from the engine to the top of the transmission is in place and snug. If it is there and in good shape, then I would suspect the hydrostatic transmission has failed. If the belt is not there, replace it; if it is loose, replace it. AGAIN DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PUT YOUR HANDS UP INSIDE A RUNNING MOWER.

The tractor will not go forward or backward it starts right up but will not engage


1) The drive belt between the engine and transmission has broken or jumped off a pulley.
OR
2) Your hydrostatic transmission is dead.

DO NOT STICK YOUR FINGERS UP INSIDE A RUNNING MOWER TO SEE IF THE DRIVE BELT IS MOVING.

Wont move forward or reverse-- transmission??


Does it have gears or a hydrostatic (automatic) transmission?

If it's a gear model, sounds like a loose drive belt.

If it's hydrostatic, it could be a belt problem or a problem inside the transmission. If it's a tranmission problem, this is not good. Many of the transmissions on riding lawn mowers are not serviceable - they are just replaced.

Hydrostatic tractor won't move forward or backward. I release the hydrostatic lever but it won't move.


Check the fluid level. Can you push it when it is in gear? Have you added any fluid it may have to be purged. Also do you use a pressure washer or water hose to clean it up or does it set outside it could be getting water in the transmission.

Suddenly stopped driving...


Check for a worn belt first.Then check the linkage. Next jack the unit up and try to run it forward and reverse with the engine running.If there is any movement at all in either direction then check the fluid level to see if it is up to the top.The worst case is the hydro. unit has a stuck check valve or something broken inside.Hope some of this helps. donnyb60

Rear wheels will not turn. Worked fine when stored for the winter


Craftsman-Husky...same tractors-built in the same factory. I also had a problem with the hydrostatic transmission not providing power to the rear wheels. Here's what Sears told me:
(1) Check to make sure the drive belt is tight both under the engine-and the tranny.
(2) Air can get into the hydrostatic transmissions-especially during shipping (new mower) and storage.
So.....
Pull your freewheel pin out to disengage the tranny-then push the mower both forward and then backwards for 50' or so. Then push the freewheel pin back in and start the mower. If the transmission then works-drive forward-then backward-then forward repeating the cycle about 4 times. Drive about 50' in each direction. This should purge the air from the treansmission.
