My KitchenAid dishwasher starts with filling in water and then either it just stays like that or sometimes I hear clicking when circulation motor is supposed to be running after a bit it continues draining and adding more water.

I thought it was circulating motor and I bought and replaced the motor but still same thing. The water will not circulate.

I have tried running diagnostics cycle by pressing "extended heat dry" "hi temp wash" and "sani rinse" in that sequence 3 times. And I get back error code 6-4.

Any help will be appreciated.

When circulation motor is supposed to be running sometimes it make no sound and stays like that for 5+ mins or make sounds like this for 2-3 mins.

P.S. this is with new circulation motor

You may have received a bad wash motor, The tech. data sheet says to ohm test the wash motor, NORMAL would be 5 to 15 ohms. You will need a multimeter to ohm test it.

Here is the wash motor assembly for your model: W11084656 Motor-Pump

Ok, good.

The wash motor should be getting a constant 120 volts to it for it to run properly.

You can use the safety pin trick if your meter leads are too big:

Here's how I do it in this thread, and advise others to do it the same way:
