We had a similair problem with our LG washer. For some reason, and don't ask me why, the smell only occurs when using liquid Tide detergent. We switched to powdered HE Tide, and the smell went away. I read on another thread that mixing white vinigar with the detergent helps keep the inside stuff bacteria free. I use about a half cup of white vinigar once every month and have not had any mold problems.

Put a whole house water filter on the cold side of the inlet water. I bet you have well water with lime in it??? Wash your clothes only in cold water. Rub a couple of empty loads with clorox, lime away, oxy clean to remove any build up in your washer

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a Frigidaire washer that has had the wrong "soap" placed in it.
If you can remove the lower panel on the front you should inspect and insure the shock absorbers are still intact and not broken before proceeding. This is what you'll be looking for...(yours may in fact be plastic cylinder type shocks, that's the older version)
If they are not broken then it should be safe to proceed. Here's what I'd suggest (see below).
Let me know how that works for you and we can move forward from there if this doesn't resolve the problem.
When oversudsing has occurred, have the washer cleaned out by running it without clothing using a hot water wash (with cold water rinse) & ½ gallon of white vinegar. If problem persist after, run a cold water rinse using 1 gallon of white vinegar.
