We raised the issue twice with two different plumbers, but neither plumber could find any problem to account for the smell each time we ran our dishwasher and once the diswasher had been running a few minutes, the smell would disappear anyway.

We got the same issue. In the end, it was the drain line that caused this. I had it in a loop and it just reeked every time I fired up the dishwasher. Dirty water just sat in the loop and would reek when I turned on the dishwasher and it did it's initial drain line purge. Smell was bad enough I had to open windows. So I shortened the drain line and adjusted it more like this, and the...
