Strange smell from washing machine

Hi folks,

I've got a question. Every now and again I get a smell in my laundry room that smells like rotten meat. It usually happens after washing clothes and the time can vary. Today I went to wash some bathroom floor mats and put the machine on hot/cold. The smell started again about the same time the machine went into the spin cycle. At first I thought it was my p traps drying out and letting gases back in but now, since washing today I'm not so sure I think it may be the machine. The machine is an 29 year old maytag and I don't want to replace it since it does probably the best job of wahsing clothes of any machine I have used. Any help or ideas about this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
