Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
The Duet has a filter trap that's pretty easy to clean. There could be debris catching residue and not allowing the washer to drain right. Remove the toe panel with a torx bit and turn the filter handlt to the left. Have towels handy because there is always a gallon or two of water left in washers after they drain! Cleaning the filter trap should be regarded as regular preventive maintenance.
Leaving the door open will actually make the problem worse because it dries out the odor-causing residue and makes it much harder to remove. If your washer stinks with the door open or shut it's time for a good cleaning before it gets worse! The area of heaviest buildup is always between the inner stainless tub and the outer plastic tub. After your washer has been cleaned you'll need to change your washing habits so odor doesn't return. If this doesn't remove bad odor you'll need a good washer cleaner.
