Every couple of months I clean my washing machine with vinegar. And if I feel the need I'll do another wash with bleach and put it on rinse cycle like 4 times with HOT water.
Check the area that captures the dirt and lint maybe. Maybe this link will give you more ideas on what could be cuasing it and how to fix it: SMELLY WASHING MACHINE

If you have a front loading HE machine you need to get some washing machine cleaner (Tide makes it) and follow the directions. You can try bleach, but I would not use vinegar. My MIL used it to clean our machine while she was house sitting and I had to run 3 cycles of washing machine cleaner to eliminate the vinegar odor. It was terrible! I do run a cleaning cycle once a month, just to keep it fresh. If you have a front loader, you need to keep the door open all the time when you're not using it to keep down on the smell and make sure not to let laundry set in it when finished (this applies to all machines, not just the HE).
