We have a danby DDW2406BLS. We had it running today and when we came home there is a message saying error 004. We have turned the machine off and also turned the hydro off but the message is still there. We have cleaned the drain out but do not know what the problem is. Can you help?
Error code 004 is caused by water being present in the bottom tray of the machine. There is not supposed to be any water there but if there is any the float switch is triggered. Get rid of the water source and the problem is fixed. On my machine the leak was in the feed pipe to the upper dish tray. I replaced the feed pipe and problem solved. Water could be leaking somewhere else however so you will have to find and fix the leak.
Simple fix for me Simply look at right side of machine get a flash light pull the insulation away from machine stick the light in look for the white little resovoir and the styrofoam float switch. syphon the 1/2 cup collection this allows the float in the attached cup to drop kicking the sensor out.... I dont suggest disconnection the sensor as im sure it will come back to haunt you. =)
I have a euroart ds9000 dishwasher
and after much frustration with the flashing 004 error i discovered the best way to fix it was to pull the dishwasher from the hole and lean it to the right and all the water drains onto the floor a messy solution i know. But after holding it on the angle whilst it was turned on as the water drained out the beeping stopped i then stood it back level turned it on and off and it was fixed .
hope this helps.
Exact same problem here - Danby support say's is an "overflow problem", the dishwasher is not draining properly.
I disconnected the drainage tubes & theres absolutely nothing in the way.
Fortunately, mine is a week old and I bought it as Costco. I will return it.

I had a error 004 on a Beaumark Model: BM-DW9702-WH Dishwasher which caused it not to run. The Manual stated it was To MUCH INLET WATER. I replaced the Inlet Valve with Part#: DW-53. The Dishwasher now runs great!
Same issue here so I just got off the phone with Danby. They said the E3 means the water is not hot enough when it goes into the machine. Now I dont know your guys situation but I let the water run hot until I cant touch it anymore, then I turn on the machine and plug it in. So it sounds like the heating mechanism is not working properly and does not heat the water to the appropriate temp to continue with the cycle. I will say that their support was really friendly and she informed me that since it was purchased less than a year ago it would be covered under the warranty. She gave me the number of a local repair shop. Lets just hope they dont tell me nothing is wrong with it because my water temp is fine. I will let ya guys know. Here is the number for Danby that I called. General office: 419-425-5052. Good Luck!
Simple solution. DO NOT spend the money on a tech coming to the house.
This error code comes from getting too much water in your machine, either from a dish filled with water emptying, or perhaps a clog from the sink that prevents your machine from draining. It is meant to prevent overflows from too much water being in the tub. It is a simple fix though!
First of all you should at least shut the power off on your machine. For the effort of a couple of more steps, it wouldn't hurt to shut the breaker off at the fuse panel. You will have to unscrew the undercounter tabs that mount the dishwasher to the countertop. They are located just under the counter sticking out from the top of the dishwasher when the door is open. Then proceed to pull out the dishwasher from under the counter. You will only have to pull it out about half way and you will find the overflow valve. It is located on the right side of the dishwasher just under the insulation and level with the lower hinge on the door. (Right side when you are looking at the machine.)
There are two overflow valves. One looks like a small cup, the other looks like a cylinder with a float in it like your toilet. Both of them have black rubber covers near the bottom. Take these covers off and about a quarter cup of water will flow out of these overflow basins. Allow them to completely empty, then replace the rubber drain covers and then replace the unit under the counter.
Once you turn the power on, the error code should be cleared and you are ready to use the dishwasher again.
