Check, to see if your transmission drive belt has slipped off of one of your pulleys. Also, check to see if your drive belt is tight, when your brake pedal is fully released. We can continue from here. Thanks!
Thank you for checking. It is very rare for a transmission to go bad suddenly, without a warning. You may need to remove your deck, in order to get a better view of the underside of your mower. Although your belt appear to be tight at the back, we need to confirm whether it is actually tight on all of your pulleys. Also, double check, to make sure your engaging pin is still attached to your transmission bypass lever, and is actually moving your bypass lever.
Check for a build up of debris on your transmission, that could be preventing your transmission control arm from fully shifting into forward and reverse positions. Let's make sure the rod is still attached to your control arm.
We can continue from here. Thanks!
