I have a Maytag front loader MAH6700AWW. I just pulled the pump lastnight because it had a quarter stuck in it and was making a terrible grinding noise. I was shocked to discover that there is absolutely no filter trap on this machine. If anything gets past the rubber boot, and coins can and do... you need to wish for luck in that you do not wipe out your pump. I was shocked that this machine had not filter trap between the pump impeller and the tub drain. All newer machines have these. The LG and most have a trap door on the front you open to access the trap. Some of the earlier front loaders required that the bottom front panel be removed. No such animal on this Maytag. Probably yours as well.

I was having that problem with smell too and I was told not to completely close the door when the washer is not in use to allow for air flow. When the door is always closed it does not allow for air flow and a mildew smell will develop. I keep mine open when it is not in use now and I do not have that problem anymore.

    Remove the two screws on the back of the lid then slide the cover back and off. May take a little cooercing on your part, but the lid just slides back and off. Good Luck!

    If it will not go into spin cycle I would check the door switch to make sure it is making. That could keep your machine from going into spin just like any top loader.

Front load washer shakes violently during spin cycle

On something like this you will need to remove the washer wrap to inspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Please see the link provided for accessing the inside of the washer. Be sure the shipping pins have been removed. The tub should float freely.
