The best way to handle washing machine odors is to prevent them from occurring in the first place. 

After a wash cycle, use a dry towel to remove moisture from the door seal. 

Keep the door crack open for ventilation. 


You can also try an empty (no detergent or clothes) hot water wash with ½ cup of vinegar to try to get rid of bad smell of the machine.
