Hello i have a problem with husqvarna riding mower

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Model is YTH21K46. NOt sure of make

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Not sure. Depends on what it is

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

It is about 4 years old It will not go forward or reverse. Since I got it, it would do this every once in a while. It always was ok next time I started it. Now it will not go forward or reverse all of the time
