 Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom, I suspect the problem is behind the wheel if the axle is spinning. I recommend replacing the pinion assembly (key13 or key #10) depending on which will is not rotating.  I added an image below of the parts diagram.

Replacing these parts should resolve the issue. The hub cap and the lock nut will need to be taken off inorder to slide the wheel off and access the pinion gear and the other related parts. See image below.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

Replacing drive belt on mower 917.378401

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

Assuming the correct belt was ordered and installed properly, I would recommend checking the drive cable. The cables can sometimes need to be adjusted when replacing the belts. Some cables can be adjusted and some cannot. If it can be adjusted, you will see a nut below the housing on the top, or another mounting slot on the gearcase bracket that the cable can connect to. I would also recommend checking the return spring. Those would be the likely issues why there is not enough tension on the belt. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
