The float is a safety device which starts the drain pump if there's
too much water in the tank.
Water inlet / condensation system
Unlike prior dishwashers, Ascenta dishwashers use a common
water inlet and condensation system. Instead of feeding water
into the bottom of the tank, dishwashers fill into the left side of the
tank. Instead of condensation exiting from the right side of the
tank, it exits the left side of the tank through the water inlet.
There are three hoses connected to the water inlet system, the
water inlet hose (from the water inlet valve), condensation
(breather) hose and internal drain hose. The internal drain hose
has a factory made high loop (~ 15" above the floor) and
connects to the external customer drain hose.
Ascenta dishwashers use a time-fill.
