It probably has "shift keys" that lock the chosen gear to the shaft. These keys often break, or wear rounded to where they won't lock in. It's a good chance, being it's stuck in a gear that a key is broken off & lodged into that gear. Hard to say without being there.
They look similar to these.

I would imagine the rear is like the one in my little craftsman. It somehow got moisture in it, my shifter key and collar rusted to the shaft and presented same symptoms you described. I took it apart, cleaned it all up, new grease ( should've used a heavy oil) and that was 4 yrs ago, still working fine today.
I poured water out of this one, no seals were leaking or any cracks, but full of water. You can see the shifter collar on the shaft, it got rusted and froze along with the two keys in the slots.
