LG WaveForce WT5101 Temperature Issue
I'm at the end of my proverbial rope with this machine and it's not because I can't get clean clothes. It's because I can't get appropriate water temps.
LG replaced the motherboard and the temp sensor at my request because the Sanitary cycle temp would never get above 140 degrees despite there being plenty of time left on the timer to continue heating. Replacing those two components changed nothing. I was prepared to live with that. What I am not prepared to live with is the total inability to have a warm or hot wash. The issue with the Sanitary cycle got me curious regarding the wash temps of other cycles so I got my trusty thermopen out and ran some tests. And I couldn't believe what I discovered.
A "warm" wash on this machine is between 65 and 70 degrees. My "hot" wash topped out at a scalding 101.5 which is what I would consider warm. I realize that temps have been reduced somewhat to keep the government happy but to me this is totally unacceptable.
Am I being unreasonable in my expectations?
