Check your "bypass" valve on the hot water heater lines. If the bypass valve is open then cold water is mixing with the hot and making your water warm. On most models of hot water heaters, the temp is NOT adjustable and runs at around 180 degrees. So, be carefull when you do find the problem because the water will be really hot!!!!

Temp

Not sure about 180. That seems a little high.
