Question about Frigidaire FTF2140FS Front Load Washer / Dryer
Remove the detergent drawer from the machine, the instruction book will tell you exactly how to do so, but usually you pull them out as far as possible and then push down on the rear centre top of the drawer to flex the plastic slightly to allow the drawer to come all the way out.
The softener/bleach compartment has a siphon built into it and this gets blocked, normally with a black scummy deposit made of microbes and softener residues. You need to clean out as much as you can, you may need a cotton bud to reach deeper crevices. It's usually possible to unclip the siphon from the drawer; it looks like a kind of lid partway over the rear of the softener compartment. If you can get it off you'll normally see two dead ended vertical tubes which are vertical and the top one fits over the lower one. Clean both thoroughly inside and out.
Reassemble and put the drawer on your sink drainer. Fill the softener compartment with water: it should drain out via the siphon if you've cleaned it enough.
Refit the drawer to your washer and in future clean it out every couple of weeks or weekly in the summer.

Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. If it does not, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. However, regarding the odor my advice to you is first rub some bleach around the door gasket. Let this dry. Next rub some vinegar around the door gasket. Let this dry. (Do NOT mix the bleach and vinegar) Then run a hot empty load of bleach in all three dispensers. Put 1/2 cup of bleach in the detergent dispenser and fill the softener and bleach dispenser to the max fill line with bleach. Once that is done repeat the process with vinegar. Please make sure you run a load of towels or some sort of items that will not matter if you get a little bleach on them once this process is done.
