Close the hot water valve to the water line feeding the machine and disconnect the water supply from the valve.Once you've done that than slowly turn on the valve to see if their is any water flow if their is water coming out of the valve than you probably have a problem with the pump.

The water in the trap could be evaporating over time and allowing sewer gas to enter the tub causing the smell. Try using some RV antifreeze in the drain. The antifreeze won't evaporate. Hope this helps.
Try compressed air through the system,careful not to use too much pressure. Also you may use another water pump to push water through system and free up the motor. The easiest thing may be to get a new motor though.
If the tub is more than 5 years old the rubber pump impeller could be disintegration.
If the debris just seems to be dirt then fill the tub above the intake with HOT water ... then add some dish washing detergent to the water ... run the pump about 1/2 to 1 hour
What you smell is algae forming in the pipes. If you have small black particles in the tub when running the jets, it is algae. Fill the tub with hot water, add 2 teaspoons of cascade dish soap and 1/2 cup bleach. run the tub for 15 minutes and drain. fill tub with cold water, run for 15 minutes and drain, tub is now ready to use. repeat as necessary.
This is due to bacteria in the water lines. this happens when the tub is not used every couple of days. The dirty bathwater dries in the water lines and festers while not being used for days (weeks) later. You should use a good cleaner through the pipes at least once a quarter or better yet once a month. This a link to an awesome product. System Flush
This Solution is Considering that there is nothing wrong with the Washing Machine itself.......If the Adjustment Knobs are Rusty and will not move, you can try and spray or apply WD 40 or Liquid Wrench to the Nuts and Bolts. Something to loosen the Bolts. Apply it a few times a day and let it sit for a few hours or longer. Then you can try to move the Adjustment bolts again. Okay you tried that and it didn't work. The only Option left is to SHIM underneath the Adjustment Bolts. You Will Need a Level and another person to help with LIfting the machine. You can use Wooden Shims, or even better yet you can use Rubber Chair Bottom Caps or Rubber pieces that are used under furniture legs. You can find these at most Hardware stores. Just Start at the corner that needs to be raised and start SHIMMING from there!! If you still have problems and your washer is working properly, then you may have to unhook the washer, lay it on its side and remove and install new Adjustment Bolts. Hope this assists you in your quest to balance your washer.....Joe
Your filter/screens are where your washer hot and cold hoses connect to you washer. You will have to turn the water off on your washer, and unscrew the hoses at the washer. You will see them at the end of the hose or in the washer itself. Take them out and clean them.
