Question about Haier HWD1000
A few tablespoons of vinegar in the middle (fabric softener) compartment of the soaps drawer every few loads should help with any smells.
You could add some diluted bleach to the soap and fabric softener compartments and wash something you don't mind getting bleached. It should kill off any mould or mildew that may have build up in the nooks and crannies. Open the button trap door and clean it out as well (front lower right corner - says push and has a large screw plug inside. Close really tightly after or it will leak)

After a dishwasher is installed the hose rarely comes to mind - unless a problem occurs and a repair person comes out to inspect the job. If the hose was installed improperly, or if it is lying in a position that does not let it drain, stagnant water will create a bad smell. Examine the hose that is probably inside the kitchen cabinet beneath the sink. If the hose is lying in the bottom of the cabinet, it is probably full of water. A film begins to form inside the hose and the odor begins to grow. The next time the dishwasher is used, the stagnant water ends up on dishes, and in the meantime it can cause a bad smell inside of the dishwasher. Hang the hose at an angle on supports in the back of the cabinet. This alone might get rid of the bad smell inside the dishwasher.
Check the Seal
A dirty dishwasher seal can be a source of a bad smell. Before deciding the dishwasher needs to be replaced, check the seal - especially at the bottom. Old food and grime builds up in these areas and can cause a particularly bad smell. Clean it with a solution of diluted bleach and hot soapy water. One teaspoon of bleach for each quart of water is sufficient to kill germs and the odors they create.
NB I decided to add a little bit of vinegar to the machine after I unloaded it. Sure it would smell pretty strong for a while but then the smell would dissipate. Voila! For two weeks now my dishes have not smelled whatsoever.

The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water
completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1
cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and
clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell
should disappear after doing all this.
