Yes sir  everything works except with extrem heavvy load?????

Repair-man:
If this is a comparable model to our American GE, there is a clutch mounted to the motor which may be at fault. Here's a copy of the GE topload washer manual for you to look at and compare with what you have there.

BrntToast:
there is a large grey plastic washer that sits on the trans shaft, look inside the machine where the trans is closest to the tub bearing on the underside of the tub, it should be on the trans shaft between the trans and the tub bearing

the weight of water and clothes causes the plastic tub to drop when full, this washer reduces friction between the trans and tub during heavy loads

is it possible you missed or lost it during the transmission change?

look on old trans shaft if you still have the part
