Kenmore Elite Front-Loading Automatic Washer leaves a terrible odor.

Kenmore Elite HE 5t Steam Front-Loading Automatic Washer leaves a terrible odor in clothes. I have tried cleaning as the owner's manual suggests. I have purchased products that are supposed to take care of odor. I have left the door open to eliminate odor. My towels smell so bad I am embarrassed for anyone to use them. I take them out of washer and place immediately in dryer...doesn't help. Clothes I wash in hot water seem worse. Help!!!

I can understand how this would be very frustrating for you. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found two links that will provide some information for your issue. They will also provide some tips on what else you can try. I would suggest that you run a "Clean" cycle on the washer with bleach at least three times. This is the best way to kills germs or mildew in the machine. I hope these will help.
