On our local news, they did a story on the smelly towel mystery. Turns out that mold is transferring to towels and clothing from the washer. Towels are more dense than other clothing, etc., so they absorb odor more.http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/consumer&id=5986899
You need to get rid of the mold and keep it from building back up. The woman on the news story swears by a product called "Smelly Washer." It's some sort of antifungal cleaner; she said that since she started using it, the mold is gone and her towels smell great. You can find it at www.smellywasher.com.

More then likely you're still using too much detergent and liquid softner. Front load washers use about 1/10 the water of a top load so all you need to use is about 1 tablespoon per load of soap and softner. If you use any more then that it builds up inside the tub behind the drum where you can't see it and starts to smell. Running the machine empty about once a month with just bleach will help stop the build up. If you do this and see soap suds that's left over soap coming out. If you see suds run it again and again until the water stays clear and you odor problem should be gone. You can go back to colored towels.
