Self-Propelled Lawn Mower Rear Wheels lock up!!!

My Craftsman Self-Propelled Lawn Mower rear wheels lock up (most of the time) when I try to pull it backward even when I dissengage the self-propelled feature. Anyone has an answer for this issue? Thank you in advance!

You didn't say but I gona assume that your Craftsman mower is a rear wheel drive,since those are the wheels that are giving you troube.It's a pretty common problem among Self-Propelled Mowers,of any kind.The dust covers behind the wheels can't keep all the dust & crud out.And from time to time they get so filthy that they don't work as freely as designed.Just take the back wheels off and the gears & the key and spring also and clean real good.Notice the way the gear comes off the axle,their directional.They will go in both ways but only work right one.
