If your fridge is self defrosting then you probably have a stuck defrost timer motor/switch. I can usually be found on the bottom of the front ourside of the fridge. You can try to advance it with a screw driver until you hear a click and once you do hear that click the fan and the compressor should turn on. Ifthey do then you will need to have the defrost timer replaced. After two years I doubt it is in warrenty. The only things that should be in warrenty is the compressor and all of the related tubing in the hermedically sealed unit..
I have had this problem many times and since I am a retierd HVAC engineer I was able to fix these defrost timers, mainly the actual motors that had dried bushings. You would first have to take the timer apart and get into those bushings and use a small amount of a good light oil like 3 in 1 oli. That usually does the trick.
Hope this helped you. If it did then would you please let me know, I would be courious to know.
Your post says it is about a dishwasher, but I assume it is about a refrigerator. There is generally a knob in the refrigerator. That will control both the freezer and refrigerator. The fridge cools by a fan that blows cold air from the freezer to the fridge. That is also why food can freeze when it is in the back of the fridge.
if you cant hear the motor/compressor running when energised then its likely to be a thermostat fault... but on energising the system if you hear a buzz then a click then its more seriously the main motor... turn off at mains for 5 mins then turn on... this should tell you either way
Adjust the knob to 3 or 4 which would be the midway temperature.
0 would probably be off or close to it. The 7 would be coldest and freeze water.
If this is manual defrost you need to turn it off and defrost it. The frost will keep it from getting cold enough. The buildup is normal from humid warm air when opening the door. You might get a standalone fridge / freezer thermometer (about $5) to tell you what temperature is. The smell may be food spoiling from warm temperature.
