Hi, W/D here.
Look at the very rear of the mower for a slot that resembles a keyhole. There will be a rod in or behind the hole. The rod must be "in" for the transmission to engage. When the rod is in between "in" and "out", the transmission will usually make a clicking sound when it is pushed. If the rod is all the way towards the "out" position, it can be pushed without the transmission causing a drag effect. Push the rod all the way "in", and try it again.
Best regards, --W/D--

Self-propelling action on 917.378771 not working


This type of mower uses a gear box driven by a v-belt. First check the v-belt. Is it in place and does it turn when the drive is engaged. You can also check the drive pinions in the wheels. These can wear out or "chew up" the insides of the drive wheels. I doubt it is the transmission, these are tough little units on this mower.

Transmission will not engage.


The transmission belt is probably loose or the clutch is faulty.

Mower will shift into forward and reverse gears but not engage. Mower will not run forward or backward.


either your drive belt has failed or your transmission has failed. make sure the drive belt is snug and not broken, do not do this while the engine is running. if the belt is good, then it is new transmission time. they cost more than a good used replacement mower.

Mower will not move.


It is very likely that your belt is not on right. Check your manual to see it it is on right.
