Are the spam messages under the spam label? Is there a way to identify the spam messages if they are in the inbox? – mhoran_psprep Jun 17 '13 at 1:07
  1. From the menu bar at the top of the Gmail Inbox list, click the down-pointing arrow next to the rectangular-shaped icon and select All to select all of the email messages in your Inbox.
  2. Uncheck the 9, or however many there are, messages that aren't spam, one at a time.
  3. From the Gmail menu bar, click on the trash can icon to delete all of the messages that have been marked as selected by having a check mark in their checkboxes.

there's a service called Mailstrom that should help you out

also, when you Select All on a page of Emails, there's usually a Select All for option. ¿does that not appear for the inbox?
