Sanitary cycle uses calrod heating element inside of washer to heat water. I suspect that is where smell is coming from. If you infrequently use sanitary, and if you use fabric softener and/or liquid detergent, then a built up on the calrod unit can happen. When used, the buildup can produce odors as you describe.
check the inside stainless steel drum isnt moving up and down. use the plastic outer drum as a reference. If its wobbling up and down, then your drum is bad. If it isnt then for some reason, the boot is making contact the drum. I would actually get a tech out to confirm this.
THE INNER DRUM IS BAD WITCH LETS IT RUB THE FRONT SEAL OF THE WASHER YOU NEED TO SEE IF YOU CAN MOVE THE DRUM UP ARE DOWN ARE SIDE TO SIDE IF SO ONE OF THE SUPPORTS ON THE BACK BROKE AND THE GET THE SMELL OUT WASH THEM IN WHITE VINAGER
You don't mention what that smell is reminiscent of?
You don't mention the colour of the "smoke" and you didn't say whether the engine is petrol or diesel?
You don't mention whether the road behaviour/performance is normal?
White smoke is almost always steam or in the case of a diesel it could be an unburned fuel mist, grey/black is excess fuel and blue or grey/blue is burning oil.
Some steam is fairly normal until the engine and exhaust system is hot but excessive amounts could be one symptom of head gasket trouble. If the engine is drinking coolant and sending it through the exhaust as steam it will sometimes smell spicy.
Burning oil smells a bit like burned eggs in the frying pan.
If the car hasn't ultra-low sulphur oil and fuel the catalytic converter will convert sulphur traces into hydrogen sulphide - the bad egg gas...
The usual cause of smoke coming out of drum is that the heater element has come on or stayed on with no water in the drum
Try it on a spin cycle only, if smoke still comes out of drum, then could be a faulty pump, or main motor is burning.
the drum should run free if not the bearing have gone and seized they will need to be replaced. hear is a video there are others you can find the bearing kit on line using the model number https://youtu.be/WGolkFlgl3Y
