My diapers smell funky... the funk is not too strong, almost like a mild fishy smell. They are all brand spanking new diapers and the smell came from their very first wash.

My routine:
A medium sized load with:
Cold prerinse
Hot wash with Charlie's (tried both half a scoop and a full one)
2 cold rinses

I have pretty hard water and a top loader. So what's the deal here? I've only done two washes so far...if this is how they are now, I can't imagine weeks down the road what they'll smell like.

I have to add a disinfectent like bleach with my charlies or I have the same issue. I don't with all detergents like say tide but those give me otther (build up rash) issues. The game does gets tiresome.

Did you strip your washer with a load of towels and the Charlie's before washing the dipes? I've heard that it removes the built up detergents from the inside of your wash and deposits them on your laundry. I don't know if it would make them stink, though.
