Question about LG WM1812C Front Load Washer
The disgusting smell is from using too much detergent, using softener or from using only cold water for washing.
The area of buildup is just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up and don't get rinsed out. To clean this area: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua6OJPn0-fU
The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the "splash area" intermittent pausing to soak is also a good tip in extreme cases.

PC Richards sells special tablets that you put in the washer once a month. I keep a dry wash cloth on top of the washing machine and when the laundry is finished I wipe the rubber gaskets and keep the door open.

Try sprinkling a whole box of baking soda in the machine. Close the door and let it sit a couple days. Wash some old clothes or rags. Things you dont care about. The baking soda wont hurt anything but no guarantee you wont still have the smell. Worth a try.

I use vinegar instead of fabric softener. It works and helps with smell.
