Thanks for your reply. How many belts does your mower have?
Double check your drive belt. If it is loose, worn, or off of one of your pulleys, this can cause our problem. I am sure your deck belt is ok.
If you have the time, I would remove the deck to get a better view, and to be sure.
Transaxles rarely go out without an advanced warning. So, I believe your transaxle is ok.
It is common for belt to come off of pulleys. Check all of the pulleys that are associated with your drive. Check to see if your drive belt is tight after you fully release your brake/clutch. This will be a good starting point. We can continue from here, after you return.
