We have soft water in my city and I use Gain to the 2 line (powder) and only have to do 1 rinse. I don't check the rinse water usually, but don't have stink issues at all. Being pregnant, I don't have much energy so I wash every 3-4, sometimes 5 days and the ammonia smell when I dump them in is overwhelming. I also use 1/4-1/2 c bleach in every load, depending on the size and how long they have Sat between washings.
ETA: When your rinse cycle starts, you can always just turn the dial back to wash, so it does a long rinse, then the shorter one. If you washer has that option anyways.
Autocorrect has helped me type this.
I lift my eyes unto the hills, Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, The Maker of Heaven and Earth. And I'll praise You in this storm and I will lift my hands, For You are who You are no matter where I am, And every tear I've cried You hold in Your hand, You never left my side and though my heart is torn, I will praise You in this storm
