True, there is weight on the upward side, but not as much as on the downward side. Two kids on a seesaw.

Imagine if you will as the weights drop off the wheel (as would water on a water wheel) that instead of washing downstream the weights are actually caught in some type of simple spring loaded contraption that works off the laws of physics and propels the weights back up top of the wheel to then be used again as weights taking advantage of gravity on the wheel to keep it perpetually moving to create the free energy
That would be adding more external friction. A spring loaded contraption will still require the same energy to "reset" the spring. Not to mention all of the other mechanical requirements to catch the weights bring them to the top, then dump them out again. With them attached to the wheel it is much more efficient.
