Question about Washing Machines
Hi, I have ba Gibson GWX435RBD4 washer.
Stops at the spin cycle and turns off.
It will not drain.
Pushed screwdiver on latch so saw it will spin but not drain.
did see in end little bubbles sort of.
Took front off, and don't see a filter.
I see a square ( housing ) with 2 hoses attached, one coming from tub, other going to drain.
Would like to know the next steps, or what advice you have please.

Hello Mamma5, It sounds like the drain pump is either seized or jammed. The drain pump has an anti jam device in it. Since you have figured out how to get into the drain pump, try turning the inpeller in the back. It will be a little hard to turn as the magnets in the motor will fight you on this. Look close in case there is anykind of thread wrapped around the inpeller. If so, then you can free the pump. If you cannot free it to run, advise the repairman what you found so he can bring a drain pump with him.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Washer won't spin or drain
The problem is most likely the lid switch assembly. The lid switch is a safety feature that will **t allow the washer to go into the spin cycle unless the lid is shut (so ** wandering children get caught inside).
If the switch is working, you should hear a click when the door closes and makes contact with it. If the lid switch is defective/broken, the washing machine usually won't drain or spin. If it's bad, you will need to replace it. It should be mounted inside of the cabinet, just under the door of the washer (on most models). Please let me k**w if this corrects your problem.

Well it turns out that the machine will stiil not spin with water in it. After putting the pump back in (after finding the nickel in it), the machine went into the spin (with all water drained from the basket from my taking out the pump). To confirm that it would spin I put it into a full wash cycle. At the end it would not spin and all water remained in the basket with the clothes. I'm wondering now if it will not spin because the water is not being pumped out and it is not being pumped out because the pump impeller was damaged by the nickel and therefore the pump needs to be replaced?
