Sears hydrostatic transmission

I don't know much about this transmission. I have had the mower about 14 years. Starts right up but wont move. It has been getting worse the last few years but it wont move now. Any help would be appreciated.

Might just be a drive belt going bad and slipping if you have never changed it. If you can find the specific model # something like xxx.xxxxx you can look up parts and see what is still available for it at Sears:

Like Mark said belt may be worn out. With the deck removed you could trace the rod (assuming without model number) from the pedal or handle that controls the speed to where it connects (likely to swing plate with an idler pulley). Typically that rod will have an adjusting nut that pops in or out of the connector with a hair pin and can be threaded back on the rod, popped back in and make the idler have more tension.

It was the belt. I had to take off the back tires, lower the transmission and take off the deck to get the belt off. I found the manual. Also changed the deck belt while it was apart. Thanks for the suggestions and help.
