OK, I tested the water temperature sensor and it seems that it is reading correctly.  The Tech sheet gives different readings at Different temperatures, and I tested that as best I could and it seems to be working. How do I test the wire or the control board?  Is it time to call someone and pay to have this looked at?

Thanks again for all of your feedback. I really appreciate it.

 Is the water heater at your house turned up wide open?
Is your hot water hose faucet turned wide open?

Buy the CCU and replace it yourself. There is no need to waste money on someone else doing this for you. The control merely plugs in wire for wire. You have  eliminated the sensor from the list of issues so this leaves but one main option according to Whirlpool, part # 8182695
