Is this a new installation or has been working for a long time?
Has the wash water ever gotten hot?

There are two water supply hoses. Which one is hot? Does the hot water supply hose feel hot?

If new, the two water supply hoses are reversed.
If in place, and worked before, then possibly:
1. Hot water heater not hot enough.
2. In-wall heater can't keep up with demand.
3. Water pressure too low (open water valve)
4. Water valve(s) in washer not working properly. (service, replace)

Check that the wash temperature has not been turned down accidentally. If not, then the most likely and obvious cause of this is the element has become faulty and needs replacing. This could also be caused by various other problems such as a faulty thermostat, resettable fuse links or activated over temperature detector, fused links in the power supply, faulty logic board, etc. Call a service engineer ASAP.

Rheem hot water system- Not getting hot enough.


sound like the mixing valve is damage.. even though the valve is mandatory rheem tankless system don't really need one due to the fact you can set the temp to avoid scalding..these unit will only go up to 120F (48C) The only reason you wll need a mixing valve is when you store water because you have to mantain a temp to kill bacteria and since there is no storage on the tankless it just does not make sense to have one. also you can turn down the temp on the control at anytime to any desire temp..this is a plumbing regulation in many part of the world that need to be look at a little more carefully..not only where you live.

Mira Sport shower running luke warm


Your hot water must come from your coil in boiler and not from a seperate hot water heater - more then likely furnace hasn't been on for heating your house nor has it been on for any draw of hot water. You have to wait till it goes on and brings the water temperature up to your setting or get a hot water tank put in or a new type wall mounted gas instant hot water unit.

Water in shower not very hot


It could be possible you require more water volume, so take off both panels on youur water heater and check what temp. they are at.
I know I discovered the hard way there are 2 heaters and 1 of mine was low,good luke.

Not enough hot water. I have an Amtrol Extrol coil water heater


Since you mentioned 'both temperatures' it seems your unit is like most all of them, a lower and upper coil.
If your hot water supply runs out quickly, this normally means that the lower coil has failed. Since heat rises, the upper coil will never supply a tankful of hot water, just hot to start, and then as the flow continues, it doesn't have time to do more than warm the water flowing into the tank.
Every home should now own a simple digital multimeter; they cost less than $20 US everywhere and one can find them in auto parts stores, electronic supply companies and tool companies.
If you have a Harbor Freight tool store in your area, you can get them for under $10 US any time and sometimes even less:
Digital meter   
You need to be absolutely certain that the voltage to the water heater is shut down. Before you measure anything else, set the meter to its highest AC setting and check across the coils and then from either contact to the metal housing. If it is dead everywhere, then set the meter to the lowest Ohms scale (normally 200). The resistance of the coil should be nearly the same reading as when you simply short the meter's probe tips together. If it measures 'OL' then the coil is open and must be replaced.

Heater issue - only works when on highest setting


this is caused by the blower motor speed control resistor being defective, this part is located near the blower motor.
