Replacing the door seal is not an easy task. You will need to get 2 special tools from LG to make it as easy as possible. The spring loaded clamps are very hard to put on because the springs are so strong. Once you get the special tools, remove the front clamp off the door seal. Pull the seal off the lip to gain access to inner seal clamp. Remove the inner clamp and pull off the rubber door seal. Just reverse the procedure when reinstalling the new seal.

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.
