Whirlpool HE Top Load Washer leaves water after cycle in outer drain tub.

I have a Whirlpool HE Top Load washer that is less than 1 year old. Model #WTW4850XQO. My laundry has developed the smelly, musty odor and is driving me batty! Since day one I have used the recommended HE products and I use vinegar instead of fabric softener. Yesterday, I purchased Affresh and did 3 washes on the hottest and longest cycle. The outer tub holds water after the cycle is finish. I can grasp the agitator and shake it and hear the water between the two barrels splash around. Is this normal? or is it not draining properly?

I posted a thread similar to this a month or so ago. Some water does remain behind in the tub.

I have a top loader Whirlpool and I have the same problem with that odor. I tried PineCone's suggestion but still have issues.

water does remain in tub, it is normal. Have found the affresh works best but usually used in front loaders.
