Question about Maytag Washing Machines
If you use liquid detergent for a long period this will cause a nasty smell and it leaves a horrid slime in pipework etc. if so, put on a boil wash and change to powder.
also, make sure there is a water barrier between the washer drain pipe and your house drains

Tips for a great answer:
Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. If it does not, then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with a faulty pump, timer, door lock assembly or control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately. However, regarding the odor my advice to you is first rub some bleach around the door gasket. Let this dry. Next rub some vinegar around the door gasket. Let this dry. (Do NOT mix the bleach and vinegar) Then run a hot empty load of bleach in all three dispensers. Put 1/2 cup of bleach in the detergent dispenser and fill the softener and bleach dispenser to the max fill line with bleach. Once that is done repeat the process with vinegar. Please make sure you run a load of towels or some sort of items that will not matter if you get a little bleach on them once this process is done.

Wipe down the exterior of the washing machine with vinegar or your favorite all-purpose cleaner.
Pour two cups of vinegar or lemon juice into the tub, and run the washing machine through a complete cycle on the hottest setting to remove odors, stains and detergent build up.
Scrub around the edge of the lid/door with vinegar to remove mildew and detergent build up.
Bleach and Fabric Softener Dispensers
Remove the bleach and fabric softener dispensers, and scrub them in the sink. Then, dry them thoroughly and return them to the machine.
