My lawn tractor will not go forward when put into gear. It will not go backward either.

My lawn tractor is about 4-5 years old. No problems with it whatsoever, til now. 20.0 HP 42" mower Electric Start Automatic Transmission Model No. 917.287120.
I was mowing with it last fall, put it in gear to go forward and it wouldn't go, I put it all that way to "fast" and it crept along. It wouldn't go in reverse either. We have checked the belts, they are all good. It just won't go forward. Any suggestions of what to check?
