Craftsman riding lawn mower 917.271141 will not move or free wheel

I just bought a house that came with a free craftsman 917.271141 16hp 42" automatic riding lawn mower. It starts fine, but when I put it in gear you only here a small grinding noise. I read the manual and it said something about purging the transmission. I performed the purging procedure and it moves in reverse a little and when i change it into fwd it just tries to move but it does not actually move. I checked the free wheel operation and it will not work. It acts like its in gear. Is there something I should try adjusting before I buy a drive belt?
