Toro 20018 self proplled lawn mower gears stripping

I have the Toro 20018 the gears were grinding when engaging self propelled. I replaced the gears on the axle, the gears on the wheels do not appear to be worn. Worked for a short time but the gears are again grinding and slipping when you first engage. Took the wheels off and the axle gears are worn down again. Any thoughts? Do I need to replace the wheels too? Bearing issues? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are the axles moving back and forth like it has bad axle bearings?
