MTD's can get debris/rust built up by the shifter - basically all it is is a small shaft with 3 indents - a lil metal ball locks it in each position. Try spraying PB blaster or rust buster near the shifter into the trans first, make sure its clean.

Sometimes this gets all gummed up and causes issues. MTD transaxles are super simple to tinker on - i have a few i opened ( and one currently) - the only difficult thing is making sure the detent ball doesnt get lost - make sure the top of the transaxle is removed first -
