Question about Indesit WA 115 Front Load Washer
The problem has been caused by doing too many low temperature washes, this has allowed the bacteria to build up on the seal.
The only long term solutioin is to fit a new door seal, and do more high temp washes, at least once a month, do a 90 degree wash or hotter with powder in, but no clothes.
This is called a maintenance wash, and helps stop build up of bacteria, and keeps door seal clean.
Please rate my solution.

First you should reach deep into the front door seal and run your fingers around. There is probably slime in there. You will need to thoroughly clean this with a bleach water mix about 50-50. You might need to pull the seal almost inside out to get in there good. If after scrubbing you still have black in the rubber the mold will come right back, in that case you will need to replace the seal. They are not to hard to replace but a little tricky. Here is a link that should help if you need to replace the seal or if the wire ring pops off when cleaning. Now if all cleans up well or you replaced it be sure to wipe out the seal after each use (deep in there) and /or leave the door open.
If the seal is clean and no mold present and it still smells then you likely have a clogged drain pump filter or pump. Here is a link that should help cleaning a drain pump or try this one for cleaning a ge drain pump filter and this one for cleaning/replacing a Kenmore drain pump
