Put a couple of old towels in on a boil wash and add baking soda and white vinegar instead of washing powder/liquid. Some say use dishwasher powder too, but baking soda & vinegar work brilliantly. Make sure you leave the drawer and door open slightly between washes too.

Wenche's final comment is the cure - leave detergent drawer and door slightly open, if it stays damp in there you get mould growth which is what smells. If you're washing every day then unfortunately you have to resort to chemical methods.
