Donna, the info that mark posted is a generic brand of things to check but your tractor has a different transaxle system. it has a variable speed pulley system and the known issue with what causes these transaxles to not go forward or reverse is that variable speed pulley system not working correctly. if the tractor won't move forward or reverse in the lower gears but when you set the selector up in the 7th gear and release the clutch and the tractor starts to move it will be that variable speed pulley issue. if this is what you find post back I will give you the part #s that need replaced. also there are several springs that attaches to the pulley system that keeps the belt tight if the tractor won't move in the 7th gear post back for where they hook and how many.
