Gibson front load washing machine will not spin

Hi Tech 17. Following up on your reply - 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?

    Just hooked up my brother's gibson front loader after moving it from across town. Had sat unused in his basement for quite some time. Now goes through cycle but won't spin and leaves clothes wet with water left in tub.

    I am having the exact same problem. My sister sold me hers, it worked when she sold it to me. I moved it to my home across town, and got it into the basement. I was doing a test load and to clean it, as it had sat with stagnant water in the pipes, and drain, and smelled. The washer washed the clothes, and rinses, from what i could tell, it agitates through these cycles but then when it gets to spin it just sits there. I adjusted the basket and it started to spin out BUT no water was draining. Then the next time I put it on spin it didnt spin again. Didnt know if it could be a clogged drain tube that would prevent the washer from spinning? Will the washer not spin if the water wont drain? I am going to unhook the drain tube from the back of washer and see if anything is clogged in there, then I guess I will check the pump. I am just wondering if the washer wont go to spin mode if the water doesnt drain? I know the basket agitates, and it moves freely so its not that, so the motor that turns the basket should be good. BUT The Million Dollar ? is, will the washer not spin if the pump isnt working or if there is a clog?

    look something may be jamming the pump again that boot that connects to the pump is called a sump and when you clean the pump you need to reach in the boot and clean that out too my bad i just assume everybody does that anyway but the impeller could be damaged

The washer will not spin


It could have an object in the pump. Your tech sheet will help. Remove the kick plate to find the the tech sheet and clean out the pump filter. Here's How

Drum won't spin and water won't drain


No spin unless drains. Check pump and hose leading to it for blockage; if none then replace it. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks
