Craftsman transaxle problem

I just changed the filters and fluids on a craftman riding lawn mower and on the 150073 transaxal. The problem I have is that it won't go forward nor reverse unless I push it. Also When I let go of the clutch/ brake, it will turn off. unless I push it. Once it has been pushed it will drive forward and reverse. WHy?please help

did you take it apart in order to change oil?

did this start happening only after you changed the fluids?

Does it make a groaning sound when it tries to move? If so, I'd have a look at the brake... it could be sticking. Sometimes the act of pushing a mower back and forth helps unstick a stuck brake.
