Residual water sits inside the wash tub under the stainless steel basket and in the drain lines & drain pump. This is normal. If you are in the habit of using very few hot water cycles and do not leave the washer door open when not in use, bacteria, mold and mildew can build up and cause the sour smell you are experiencing. The following link provides some good info on how to prevent these odors:
You may also want to remove the drain pump reservoir and check to see if you have anything caught. Sometimes debris can build up in the drain pump and cause odors. The following link explains how to check the drain pump:
I personally own a front loader such as yours and have never had a problem with odors by following this simple advice. Occasionally run a sanitary cycle with nothing but bleach in the water. For washers with no santitary cycle, run it on the hottest setting you have. Sorry...front loaders require a bit more TLC than conventional top loaders. I hope this helps you. If you have questions, please let me know.

The thermal fuse is going to be located on the heating element housing. When you take off the front panel you will see your lint screen housing. You will need to remove that to get to the element housing. Once that's out of the way the thermal fuse should be right on top of the housing. It is small and has two small wires coming off of it. The wires should be different colors. Just don't get it mixed up with the thermostat. Just match it up with the new one that you have. It is held in place with two small screws. Let me know if you have any other questions or still can't find it, also let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help out.

Check the lint trap and the vent. If the vent is clogged or crushed in anyway then replace it with a new dryer vent.
There reasons why a dryer will not dry clothes:
Clogged Lint Trap
Crushed or clogged vent
Last but not your issue, not getting and heat to the unit due to glow ignitor bad or no gas supply or bad gas valve.
So check what I told you and this should fix the problem right away

pry the top up at the corners and remove attaching screws for the front panel and remove carefully. Now you should be able to see the canister that contains the heat element and the thermal fuse. If your thermal fuse is bad you also need to replace the high limit thermostat switch which is located on the canister itself and check that the heating element is not broken anywhere throughout the coil.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.
