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

Is it normal for liquid to be present in the top part of the drum?

Yes I have this type of washer and it has the water in a ring at the top of the drum to help balance it out during spin, not quite sure why but yes it should be there. The gargling sound you describe could also be the balancing hooks that attach the drum to the top of the washer which sometimes make strange noises but there fine.

Washer tub has water but it will not drain

If you are refering to the sloshing sound when tub is moved back and forth it is supposed to be there. That is the balance ring. It is a liquid filled ring at the top of the tub that acts as a counter weight to keep tub balanced.

I hear water in the washing machine when move it and think maybe water is building up in the machine. What should I do?

What you are hearing is the liquid inside the balance ring at the top of the wash tub. You could set the machine in the center of your driveway and drain every drop of water from the hoses and pump, yet you would still hear the liquid in the balance ring when the machine (more specifically, the inner tub) is moved. It needs to be there to help balance out of balance wash loads.

Spin cycle is of balance

Did you follow my post at this link Clutch repair post for your repair ?
I’m a little confused by this description “”there is what seams to be a sealed plastic ring on the top of the stainless drum is there suppose to be liquid in it there is a liquid in there””.
Maybe go to and look at the exploded view and give me a p/n.
“”I had to replace the top bearing on the "drive shaft" it was making alot of noise the cluth assembly seamed ok but still kicks out on spin cycle””
Are you saying you replaced the upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing assembly only? If so that tells me you purchased the whole clutch assembly. I know of no parts supplier that sells the upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing assembly alone. We Are talking about a FAV6800A machine correct? To make sure I’m following here is the clutch parts view.
Here is pic of the same clutch causing dC errors prior to clean up.

Upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing
Is this the part you speak of ""I had to replace the top bearing on the "drive shaft" it was making alot of noise the cluth assembly seamed ok but still kicks out on spin cycle""
If we are talking about a FAV6800A or FAV9800A I can help you.
Let me know....Rich

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.

Sounds like washer mites. Put some cheese on the top of the washer after the load finishes. Then leave for at least 60 minutes. The mites will eat the cheese, be satisfied, and your wash will be good next time.
