Question about Whirlpool Dishwashers
We all wish we had a lava-scrub cycle for that stubborn pan.

There is, in nearly every case, no consumer temperature adjustment on the unit. The common person would conclude that the only way to get hotter water is to set your water heater higher. Water heater manufacturers label their units specifically to avoid high temp hazards.
This is problematic AND dangerous! If it is set too high, you risk not only scalding everyone in the house (as the water temp from every hot fixture will suddenly increase!), but also premature failure of the hot water lines, heater elements and/or the tank itself... not to mention the inlet or seals of any appliance or apparatus fed by hot water.
That said, I offer a simple solution.
You can purchase a small in-line heater (normally used in mall in-store bathrooms or small rented offices) and have it installed just before the inlet of your appliance, as not to effect any other water outlet.
