You have to remove the cabinet. Remove the screws on each end in back on the consol. The consol will then flip up. Remove the two snap springs holding the cabinet on. Unplug the lid switch. Now the whole cabinet will pull off. Check out the back.

Check the inter tub ring you should hear water when you spin it by hand

Before installing the new timer, make sure it is in the off position. Also make sure the washer in the off position. Then you should easily be able to tell.

What is the liquid in the top ring of washer

its called "Calcium-Chloride",its a type of salt water mixture put in these rings to dampen "OFF-Balance" loads in the washer,and the reason for this type of mixture is so people that store or operate the machine in below freezing temps do not have a solid off balance chunk of ice that wont balance the machine during operation or break the ring when it freezes

Im tring to find instructions on how to install a harmonic balancer for a 01 chevy impala

If you have a manual, likely you are looking in the wrong place...that would be listed as part of any timing chain removal, front seal removal etc.
Balancer is removed by taking off any pulleys attached to it, removing the center bolt, then using a harmonic balancer puller (specific tool).
To put it back on, just put the new one on the crank snout, put back in the center bolt and washer and tighten it up. (anything that is in your way and preventing you from getting in there needs to be removed as well)

Spinning is out of balance even when there are no clothes in the washer

Most has a balance ring built onto to the tub, make sure thr balance ring is not damaged, It is normal for the tub to shake in the spin cycle with nothing in washer

You can hear water still in the washer - not inside the tub where you put the clothes but inside the washer machine.

I believe you are referring to a GE top loading washer. GE uses a liquid filled balance ring around the top of the washer to help compensate for off balance load. The sound is perfectly normal.

Whirpool Washer, Loads become unbalaced in spin cycle.

it has a bad balance ring on the top of the basket no so hard but not that easy either
you have to remove the case to get to the balance ring
go to and go to parts and put in the full model number, under the parts tab in appliances and select view brakedown and it will explain it better with you seeing it

Spin Shake ...

yes the water is supposed to be there, thats called the balance ring, some machine use cement others water. you say the washer is unbalanced even when empty, is there an indicator or is the machine itself physically off balance. if there is an indicator the off balance swich might have gone bad or you might need to adjust the leveling legs.
