Electrolux Washing Machine

Electrolux Washing Machine

I recently took over an apartment that has a washing machine. It's an Electrolux frontloader and works great - its just that it smells and so does the clothes. It doesn't smell bad, but it smells very, very strongly of detergent. I know the previous owner of the apartment and I bet she used way too much detergent when washing. I've tried running the machine on 95C, with and without detergent and even used chlorine a few times. I leave the dosage box and door open between washed to air it out, but if you close it even for a day the smell comes back. What really bothers me is that it sticks to the clothes, too. Now that the weather is warmer I can put things outside to dry (thank goodness there's a balcony) but that only seems to help a little bit. But, I'd be delighted if there's anyway I can get rid of the smell once and for all. I'm really peculiar about scents and when it bugs me, it really really bugs me. Any and all tips are appreciated!
