Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Is engine locked from pieces of the belt on the lower engine pulleys? Does the starter click? Did you tilt unit, to get the belt off? Can you turn the engine, using the flywheel cover top? The mower has release for both transmissions, that will let mower roll free. Did you look at the owners manual to find them?

The starter does not even click. No pieces missing, I just reached down and pulled the one end of the belt.I can't find the owners manual

Belt could have damaged the wires going to the electric clutch, or other wires in the harness. Cub Cadet has on lone owners manuals, but you need the full model number . Here is site. Go to service and parts, then look to the left under customer services. ----------------------------------------------------------
