Why is my lawn mower not moving

Why would my Craftsman riding lawn mower quit moving? It is about 8 yrs old and has a hydrostatic automatic transmission. It will not move in forward or reverse. Any help would be appreciated.

@jeff1 ,William, You did not state your model, so I will post some generic suggestions. Check the free wheeling lever at the rear of tractor is not engaged(1st link) and park brake off. Check to see the belt is still on and not broke/stretched and for worn pulley's. Check for hydro-static fluid leak or low fluid. Check clutch to see if it is engaging when you switch on, if not check battery condition as it needs good charged battery 12.4 +Volts to engage clutch normally, also could be bad wire/plug/switch for clutch, Control linkage out of adjustment, Internal pump damage. Check the 2nd link as you may be able to get your manual using your model # for more trouble shooting on your issue and suggestions. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
