This is a typical problem with most front load washers and is due to moisture inside the washer being unable to dry out because of the air tight rubber gasket. The only consistent soultion I've seen for this problem is to leave the washer door ajar in between washes which will allow the moisture to air-dry as the conditions for mould growth are thus prevented.

With any front load machine manufacturers suggest to leave the door open after cycles to help evaporate the water - this is even done in top loading machines nowadays. Also clean the unit with bleach water and rinse in high temp water cycles.

The rubber seal at the front of the machine has gone mouldy. I have cleaned it before with bleach but the mould comes back all the time

Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
