In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

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.

SOURCE: Rider won't move Hydrostatic
Ahh a Craftsman, out of my league slightly as they are not brought in to the UK.
From what I gather these are a Sears product so it would have been delivered to you "Dry" .ie no oil or fuel etc. Have you checked the Hydrostatic Fluid level? What type of Oil did you put in there when you built the machine up? If you have used the wrong grade it would give these type of problems. Most Hydro units on lawn tractors (here in the UK anyway) often just run on Engine Oil not Transmission Oil but this should be stated in your instruction manuals for the machine
