Catriver I looked but didn't find it. Today everything takes you to everything but what you are looking for .Thank you so much for your help, I thought maybe I was the only one with this problem, because no one else seemed to complain about this it is usually the circuit board. So far any troubleshooting or any self help wants you to pay for thier help. If I had the money for all of that I would call a local repair man and let him rip me off at least my washer would be fixed.

Re: mildew smell and water sound
OK Momma, Im going to give you their solution word for word in the bullitin. 1. Make a solution of 1 cup chlorine and 2 cups warm water and pour it into the dispensor slowly. 2. Wipe the lower section of the grey boot with a bleach solution and cloth. 3. Fill the bleach dispensor with clorine bleach. 4. Run the washer through a complete cycle using hot water. This is their solution. What they didn't suggest, but I do, is when the washer is in it's cleaning cycle, pause the washer for about 1 hour and go back to restart and let it finish. This way it should get rid of any odor. Good luck with this Momma...Catriver...post back.

This sounds like the pump is clogged up or the drain hose from the pump is retaining debris. The pump is easy to remove and check. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html check the video on how to take apart a direct drive washer. This will walk you thru the disassembly and the pump removal.
Sounds like the little flexible apron just in front of your washer drum has mildewed. Take a look and see if it is holding water, and look for mold while your'e at it. Use a good bathroom mold and mildew remover to kill the mess and deodorize it.
Has anything spoiled in there ? anything spilled - Make sure you clean the inside look for any stains or residues.
Remove your cirsper drawers and look for any stagnant water or mildew there - sometimes when defrost drain is plugged up and water drips at the back, it ends up below there and will create mildew over time.
Once you've located and cleaned the interior use a box of baking sode, open the lid and keep in fridge.
Look under the passenger side of the dash, behind the carpet. Feel the back side of the carpet for dampness. If so, try this: In the same area, look for a black rubber hose that comes from the heater plastic box, and pokes thru the firewall. See if it is plugged up. This is the drain pipe for the AC box, and the cowl panel if the side drains are plugged up. Try that, and please get back to me.
Look inside the door to the gray rubber ring gasket thingy. Pull apart the sides and look in. Betcha a dollar to a donut there's mold in there. It's a gross, nasty problem whirlpool customer service doesn't give a damn about.That's where water sets after wash cycles. There are tablets call "Affresh" which can be run with hot water for a cycle to attempt to clean out the mold/mildew. Not cheap, not fair, and probably will only be a start to a maintenance type cure if you've had the washer for awhile. May take some manual labor with bleach as well. NOT a sanitary washer. This is an unbelieveable problem with a washer. Piece of ****.
pull out soap dispenser draw and look up to where water comes out. my mach was full of mildew. i removed the top of dispenser soaked in bleach. i believe this is where mildew problem starts and spreads to drum and gasket
Buy whirlpools new affresh washer cleaner. They are tablets that you run through the washer cycle with the hottest water setting. They kill the black mold and keeps it from coming back if used regularly.
Momma, Maytag put out a service bullitin on this problem. TB26-72. This is a common problem on your model. Why don't you google the service bullitin and it will give you the instructions they have for this problem. If you can't find it, post back and I will post them for you...Catriver...post back.
