Craftsman Riding Mower Problem

I've got a Craftsman riding mower model# 917258911 22.5 HP 50" cut that currently won't move in any gear. Hopefully something minor, but can you give me some things to check for? Any help would be appreciated.

I would guess that your drive belt has come off or is not turning the pulley atop the transaxle.
Use the model # here
to find your Illustrated parts list. Unfortunately it is not much help in determining belt routing....

Will the owners manual show how the belts should go on? Don't have a manual, but have ordered it from Sears part direct.

Have you had a rear wheel off lately? If so, the axle key may have fallen out, keeping the axle from turning the wheel.

Yes the owners manual "Should" outline a procedure for belt replacement and routing.
