Question about Danby DDW2406 Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
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.

Error code 004 means "overflow condition", meaning the dishwasher wasn't draining properly.

I called service. Too much water. The extra water from the pot tripped the overflow mechanizm. It has a float similar to a toilet tank. Pulled the machine out 1/2 a foot on the right side at the level of the door opening, behind the insulation you with find the flood mechanizm. Mine had two rbble plugs. Pulled off the lower one. About 1/4 cup of water drained into a low bowl. Cap put back on, pushed it back under the sink and back in business.
Next time dump the extra water in the sink!!!!

I have the same error, and phoned Danby this morning and thet tell me that it is an "inlet" problem where there is too much water coming in. The only way to fix it is to have a tech come.
