These mowers are notorious for this issue. Transmission is most likely gone bad. You can check chain to make sure it is installed still, but I would guess bad transmission. I have 4 of these in the scrap pile at shop for same issue

i throught it was the driver disk it move forward for a second two weeks ago but thats it i check the chain is still install

You can replace the drive disc and it may work, but be prepared for the worst. The drive disc is not too much to take the chance, much cheaper than a new mower for sure.
