John Deere LX 178 looses ground speed

jtruffa Have John Deere LX 178 that looses ground speesd after about 1 or more hours of operation (when I drive it on solid ground rather than grasss a little better speed). Had the transmission belt replaced; noticed the transmission belt still seems loose (looser than th belt to the blades); checked and filled the tramnsmission fluid. Any help would be appreciated.
Stu Hale I have a similar problem ... especially in reverse. I replaced the drive belt last summer, inproved some, but finally took it to local dealer in March. They said everything looked fine, but the transmission may be wearing out and need replacing. The last mowing yesterday I had almost no reverse and less forward power on hills so I am about to look at replacing the transmission if no one else has a better solution.
