Is the smell coming from the washing machine, or from the stand pipe it drains into? I would suspect that you have either a drain leak and the trap under the stand pipe won't hold water, or that the vent is clogged and the water in the trap is being siphoned. Another possibility is that there is a kink in the discharge hose from the machine. I would look at these things first before blaming the machine.
