Try putting the washer through an entire cycle using the settings for hot water and a small load. Use your regular detergent and add a cup of white vinegar to the water when the rinse begins. When the cycle is complete, leave the lid to the washer up so the inside can air dry. I always leave the lid up and air dry the inside of my washer when I am finished with a load. Hope this helps.

In every load I wash I add vinegar to the fabric softener dispenser. No only do I never have a smell but the vinegar acts as a fabric softener and the vinegar gets rid of the soap buildup in the washing machine.

Hi Betty, Leave the top open on your washer for a few hours after your last wash and you won't have the odor.
