Sounds as if a belt got thrown off a pulley or maybe the belt broke. There should be two belts, one to the blades and one to the transmisssion.

Hi Nancy, Could be the shift linkage- have someone work the shifter while you look underneath, a shift rod could have come loose or, cotter pin could have dropped out. I had one stuck in reverse because of a cotter pin jamming against the housing. Take care, Daryll in NW FLA

I'm not familiar with your mower. Is it hydrostatic drive? Do you push a pedal foward to go foward and then rock it backwards to go backwards? If it is a hydrostat there is usually a lever to disengage the hydrostat so you can push the mower without the engine running. This lever is either on the back or under the seat. Be sure this lever is in the correct position. You bought it new so you should have an owners manual which would show this to you.
If it's not a hydrostat it sounds mechanical. Possibly a key sheared on the axle shaft or as someone else said a linkage problem.
