Question about LG WM2688H Front Load Washer
I had the same problem, except it wasn't just towels. It was everything. I did some research and found that this is a common problem and nothing a tech can fix. I was about to go out this weekend and spend $1000 on a new washer because I couldn't use this washer on my clothes anymore. I did one more search for a solution and THANK GOODNESS found a solution on another site. A woman had the same problem and, after much trouble, someone at Best Buy finally told her to never use liquid detergent in the machine, not even HE. So I cleaned the inside of my machine, around the door, the rubber seal, etc. I ran the tub clean cycle with bleach and vinegar. The smell was gone and I have been using powder Tide ever since, and the smell hasn't come back!!!!!

Find a product called Washer Magic.
In addition to the things you mentioned above, Use ONLY HE detergent (the mildew eats leftover soap residue) and always remove the clothes immediately after every load. That's the best advice there is.

With the front loaders DO NOT use liquid detergent... since I switched to powder detergent it never smells ..

We had this too and only on the towels. We put Downy in the fabric softener area, HE soap in the soap area and Clorox Bleach in the Bleach area and washed the towels on Sanitize--takes two hours, but they smell great and solved our problem.
