This is a common problem with front loader washers. Yes, it is possible to replace, but before doing so have you attempted to clean it with bleach and a non abrasive scrub pad (that would be the green kitchen pads - NO SOS pads or steel wool!)? The following link will give you some guidance on preventive measures to take in minimizing and/or preventing front loader mildew and odor:
If you still wish to replace the door seal (called a "bellow"), the following link describes how:
Some of the steps (like the diagnostics procedures) may differ with your washer. The 417 model that you have is the smaller front loader. In addition, your door bellow may be held in place around the door by adhesive, instead of a clamp. You will need to remove the bellow from around the door using a putty knife to carefully peel is loose. Clean the area thoroughly before installing the new bellow. The back of the bellow on yours may be held in place by a large spring clamp. This will require two people to get it back in place.
You can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in you model number and look under the "Tun/Motor" heading for item number 8 (part #5303937187). These parts usually come with instructions. I hope this helps you.
