What can I do about a strong, moldy odor that seems to be coming from my kitchen sink or disposer?

I've cleaned out the disposer, scrubbed the rubber gasket at the opening (topside and underside), left bleach overnight in the disposer and adjoining sink. I've also used a little brush to clean out the connector tube between the disposer and the sink. I've run the dishwasher with some bleach inside. Each of these things seemed to help for a day, then the odor returns. I went to Home Depot and bought "Sink and Disposer Cleaner" solution. Again, helps for a day. This is driving me nuts, and I'm not much of a plumber. Any suggestions?
