I purchesed this washer cheap in need of repair. It needed the bearing assembly, got that done and now in the spin mode the washer shakes violently and walks all over.

It will do this with a small load, large load, and no load.

There was a thick film of grey sludge in the tub and Im wondering if it got into the basket and made it unbalanced, what recommendations do you have to clean it?

all the springs seem to be ok, that is they are all intact. Also there is liquid in the drum, I read that it is supposed to balance it.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

That's possible, Just remove it anyway you can.

Was it shaking that bad before you replaced the bearing?

If it still shakes like crazy then you may have not assembled it properly after you replaced the bearing or your spring rods are bad, I'd recheck your reassembly first.

Here's the spring rods for your model:
