We have a front load HE washer. Although we don't have stinkage issues with it personally, I know it's an issue for people out there. I discovered Affresh a few months ago and it sounds like it's the solution many people have been looking for. Affresh is an HE washer cleaner in tablet form that's not only safe for all brands of washers, but also is environmentally friendly. You can purchase Affresh here.

Other tips for a clean smelling washer include leaving the door open and soap dispenser drawer open after running a load of clothes. I've also found that switching over to powder detergent helps too. I've been using powdered Tide HE and find that it definitely leaves my clothes smelling very fresh and pleasant. Much more so than the liquid equivalent.
