Looking a the 54-inch deck model, the mower uses two belts, one from the engine to the deck, one for the deck. See the link below.

Is it the PTO Clutch?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 17 days ago

Pto clutch is the click, sounds to me the belt from the engine to the deck is off.

No the belt from the engine to the deck is still on, I just checked again to be sure. Other ideas????
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 17 days ago

Does the belt turn when you flip on the pto and you hear the click?

The belt fromthe engine to the deck is turning and the drive pulley is all turning. The deckbelt, the long one is super loose. and the pulleys on the deck will hand turn. The springs are all okay also. The deck belt is really long and off the pulleys on the deck.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 17 days ago

So the deck belt is off. 48 inch deck, do you have the owners manual to show it?
