Question about Mtd LAWN MOWER PART # 17871D FENDER-REAR HYDRO
Remove the deck and blow or wash off all the old grass, remove the belt and make sure all the pulleys turn..its common for that deck design to have the spindles freeze up. If they don't turn that's probably what happened...also make sure all moving linkage is lubrated on the deck.

The front belt should be a 954-0280A, rear 954-0370. When you go to higher gears, the front belt should be getting tighter as the vari-speed pulley is moving further back. Remove the shift plate, put the transmission in neutral. Start the engine, put speed selector in highest gear and slowly let out on the clutch. You should be able to see what the problem is. It will do everything the same as if were in gear, except move. Make sure you have the correct belts.

Sounds like the drive belt is either broken or worn out. It is under the frame and you will have to take the deck off to get to it. If you have the model number,from under the seat, go to www.precisionope.com. Look under OEM parts and you will find a part number for the belt.
