Try reading the instruction manual. Unless you bought a totally stripped-down model, it has cycles you can turn on to do what you want the machine to do, and it will still be more efficient than the old one. NO dishwasher heated the incoming water as a default setting; you always needed to select the cycle that did it. As for the non-heated drying: my dishwasher has a selection to turn on the heat. I do not use it because it is not needed.
