A year ago I moved my washer across the country, and had it in storage for a total of 10 months. Now that I'm in my permanant home, I re-installed the washer/dryer and they are both working fine. But an odor of mildew persists and is noticed whenever I open the door. Clothing doesn't smell after washing, so I'm wondering if there's a reservoir or something that might have caught some overflow. What else might contribute to this stench? I have the waste line emptying into a utility sink (i.e. not hard plumbed) and there is no odor eminating from the sink. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Thanks very much for the "stink link." I'll do some troubleshooting to see I if I can cure the problem.
