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.

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.

this is a belt driven transmission. from the engine driven pulley going aft towards the xmission differential there is another smaller variable speed pulley, there is a long belt between these two, from the variable speed pulley there is a larger xmission pulley that sits kitty-corner to it with a belt between these two. This larger "xmission pulley" is what drives the differential and depending upon which gear you have selected, makes it go forward or reverse. Check that both belts between pulleys are on, check that pulley's hardware is completely secured (nuts tightened down) The heads of these pulley's are splined to align to the shaft(s) and if they aren't tight, they will just spin and not engage the transmission. If your battery is under the seat, remove it and you should be able to see and access the aft pulleys. If both belts are on and engaging the pulley's and the shaft is turning on the transmission pulley than you have transmission differential failure. Bet it's the belt off or pulley head loose. Good luck, hope this helps
