What you're describing sounds like detergent build-up to me. It can happen even when you rinse religiously. My recommendation would be to strip your diapers.
If you want to use tea tree oil in your wash routine, add a few drops (it's potent stuff and I wouldn't use more than 5 or 6 drops) to your load. If you have a front loader, put it into your detergent dispencer. If you have a top loader, add it to the drum once it's filled with water.
All essential oils are anti bacterial and can help with odors. If the root of your problem is build-up though, they wont's solve the problem. They'll just act as a bandaid.
