mower starts but will not engage in forward or reverse

My mower will not go forward or in reverse when moving the levers forward or backward. No symptons could be detected prior to the issue. I was mowing and starting to go in reverse and it would not go. At that time it would not go forward either.

I would replace the drive belt. Instructions will be in your manual. I attached an image of the instructions and the belt routing. The manual is available online at little bit of an odd site, but it works :-)
