Hydrogen peroxide....and it will take mold out of fabric, furniture and carpet.
I had this problem before and I had to take the center agitator out (unscrew the top cap and pull the entire thing out, not sure if all washers do this) when I did there was a nasty layer of mildewy lint packed into the shape of the inside of the agitator (between the agitator and the upright support).
It was a used washer we owned a few years ago, I am not sad to see it go.
Other than that I agree with the distilled white vinegar.
Run a little distilled white vinegar through it. It should neutralize the odor.
Maybe try to dump in a box of baking soda and wash a few towels as the load. It should work the same way as it deodorizes a refridgerator.
I have done a load of laundry with bleach and also with vinegar. That seemed to help quite a bit. I had also thought about getting this product, but never did.http://www.smellywasher.com/
