It's not uncommon for tanks that have never been flushed to have sediment build up in the bottom of the tank to the point where they won't drain out. One thing you can try is you hook a hose onto the drain valve then open the drain and turn the water back on to the tank. The water pressure might get the flow going and flush out enough of the sediment so the tank can drain.
