when it done, leave the door open a little so fresh air can get it a dry things out a bit.
Use HE type detergent from now on. It really does clean better, and it helps the machines stay in good working order.
Also, liquid softener is not advised. Switch to dryer sheets

Most washing machines collect lint during the wash cycle and send it down the drain during the drain cycle.
If your machine is a Maytag, though, it may be different. Most Maytag washing machines collect lint in the center tube of the agitator. You need to lift out that tube and clean it periodically. Other machines have a lint filter near the top of the tub, which you need to slide out, clean off, and reinsert.
My lint filter was as filthy as....a lint filter that hasn't been cleaned in many, many years. And yes, mine was a Maytag. You should have seen my face when I realized that middle column that I thought was completely attached to the wash fins came off!
I also rinsed the machine with Cascade and bleach, I really hope no more stinky clothes!

Adjust the amounts required 1cup vinegar to rewash; ad 1cup in rinse cycle if really bad. Can substitute lemon juice consentrate,or suddsy amonia.
Try 1/3 cup directly into the dryer with the wet clothes, this will not help future wash loads but will fix a bad load when forgotten over night.
best of luck, and keep all lint filters clean
