Here is the answer re water temps: FYI, Whirlpool CS was really no help nor was the only reply that I got to the question on this site. Here is the skinny on new washers and energy conservation - fact is "Hot" now means warm, somewhere around 106F. "Warm" now means cool somewhere around 60F. The washer has a fill valve that will switch back and forth between hot/cold, according to a thermistor and is not adjustable. If you take the thermistor out of circuit, machine will not fill. And according to the service technician who paid me a warranty visit (machine would not fill on hot cycle) all new machines are this way. Energy Conservation! So, if you want hat water for the bed sheets will have to add hot water during the fill cycle from an external source. BTW, Squim girl, my hot water tank is set at 130F.
