You can buy some evaporator coil cleaner that doesn't have to be rinsed off. The normal condensation on the coil will take care of that.

Bad fan blower smell and bad smelling and tasting ice cubes from ice cube maker

If unit has a water dispenser, how does water taste? I've run across bell peppers that will emit a bad smell. Keep in mind 95% of all refrigerators circulate air from freezer to refrigerator side and then back. It continues to circulate air so bad produce from refrigerator side will get into freezer side and ice will absorb smell. First, dump all ice. Then line shelves in refrigerator side with newspaper, that absorb smells. You can even try kitty litter in small cups in refrigerator side. Bell peppers gives off that metallic smell and can take some time to get out of unit. Highly unlikely a motor is bad and you've already changed outside water line.

Musty smell coning from window ac unit

You can spray glen 20 or similar into the return air filter with the unit running to kill the mould that is causing the smell, the other thing you can do is runn the unit on "fan only" mode for 20 mins after it has been in cooling mode before you turn it off. This dries the evaporator coil.

The air the unit blows out sometimes smells musty/moldy. Also, if you leave say a glass of water in the path of blowing air, the glass and water will take on a bitter taste.

Sounds to me that your unit needs to be serviced take out your filters clean them. Perhaps even the evaporator coil may need cleaning.

There's a bad smell coming from my Amcor AF9000E NanMax portable AC unit. It smells like the smell that you would find in a damp, musty basement. Is there anything that I can do to illuminate this...

Yes there is. First turn the unit OFF & unplug it. The remove the air intake filter and clean it. After that, remove the water collection bucket and was it in warm water and mild dish washing liquid. Rinse and thoroughly dry. Doing this should help to eliminate the odor.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
