    I have a Simplicity 1534 34'' Walk Behind Hydro. I was mowing tall grass yesterday and all of a sudden it would not go forwards or backwards. I don't think it was the transmission because it happened all at once. I know it isn't the belt cause it's still intact. The mower will still engage the blade and cut, but will not go forwards or backwards? I don't understand lol. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    It didn't literally connect to transmission but the transmission has a pulley/spindle under it and if belt isn't attached, it won't go into drive.
