KitchenAid dishwasher KDFE204EWH4 stalls during wash after every drain and fill in cycle. then you open door, wait 10 secs shut door hit flashing start button, restarts wash just fine every time. pump, and control board replaced, circ pump getting 115 volts, drawing .80 amps? heating good, error always shows 6-4. Question to any techs, what could cause such strange behavior? everything works perfect as long as you open then close door and hit start again???

Yes, its Possibly the door latch switch is starting to fail.

1. Open and close door, and then press Start/Resume key.
2. Unplug dishwasher or disconnect power.
3. Measure resistance of door switch contacts while checking mechanical operation of latch assembly.

Lets first check the door switch. Check the resistance of the door switch with a multimeter. Should be less than one ohm. High ohms=bad switch.

Here's the door latch switch assembly for your model you can order if yours is bad:
Door Latch WPW10653840


There is a video in the door latch switch part link that shows you how to remove it and replace it.
