Why won't my Craftsman Riding lawnmower start? It keeps flooding. I already tried letting it sit and drying out the filters.

I take it the coil is producing a good spark? Might be good to replace this and also try to physically check that the motor will turn by hand. If you have movement, and the unit turns then it should start when it has a good spark. On failing that I would have the carburetor overhauled. Hope this helps.
The float in the carburetor is probably stuck and it needs to be serviced. (07/21/2009)
