Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer
Pull the fabric softener dispenser cap off and look down the center of the spindle. The fabric softener when spun will slosh out the outer edge of the cub and go down through the spindle and I have found this needs cleaned out like once every 2 months or the holes in the bottom of the spindle gets clogged and then the softener solution just gels up and stinks. Try scooping out the gel stuff, and then take a ratchet and socket (dont remember the socket size) and unscrew the bolt that holds the spindle on and take the whole spindle to the car wash and use the tire & engine cleaner on it, and then rinse it out good until the water runs through the holes in the bottom.

My whole house smells like rotten eggs from my washing machine. I am currently running a hot water cycle with 3 tablets of Affresh (bought at Home Depot)...I'll know in about 30 minutes if it worked!

There is nothing in a washer to smell - just stainless steel, rubber and plastics!
check the following:
are you using liquid detergent? if so after extended use, the machine smells like drains. put on the hottest wash with no clothes and smell will go. revert to using powder.
check there is a water barrier between the drain hose and your main drain. if not, the smell of your sewer will come up thro the drain hose.
is the drain connected to a spigot off the sink trap and do you have a waste disposal unit? these stink and unless you again have a water barrier the smell will come thro the drain hose
