Try cleaning the filter and you can buy some coil cleaner for the inside coil that doesn't have to be rinsed off. It is supposed to clean and deodorize. Might as well clean the outside coil while you are at it. You can also remove the unit from the window and take the case off to clean inside.

Sewer smell in the drum

Beat way to solve this problem is, Run your machine on the highest setting and add a cup of bleach, do the same again and add a cup of vinegar, this will clean the inside of your machine and give the water inlets a good clean out. Repeat as necessary.

Mold & Smelly in Washer

Thanks for your suggestion about looking in the lip of the seal. I found one of my three year old granddaughters socks. Also, the seal for very dirty so I mixed a 50% solution and 50% solution of chlorox and used an old towel rag to wipe and wash throughly around the lip seal.

I noted that the aluminum ring inside the washer had also accumulated a lot of dirt. With one hand and fingers I held the wet cholorx towel inside the ring and with the other hand spun the tub around several turns until I had removed all the dirt and grime.

It did have a moldy smell. I'll let you know if this fixed the problem.
