The Cabrio washer is a low water consumption machine and my experience with odors in clothes has been a lack of using chlorine bleach and hot water when washing white clothes, plus the over use of detergent and fabric softener.Fabric softener seals the pores of the fabric so that the detergent doesn't get into the clothes and will permanently damage micro-fiber cloth.Your complaint is probably the most common complaint I get on most of the new washers these days.Try using Borax and Arm & hammer washing soda with a very minimal amount of detergent and you will notice improved results.
