There are more state laws regulating rentals than just the Residential Landlord Tenant Act, RCW 50.18. For example, Title 19 requires that hot water heaters be set no higher than 120 degrees when the tenants move in.
RCW 19.27A.060. Upon occupancy of a new tenant in a residential unit leased or rented in this state, if hot water is supplied from an accessible, individual water heater, the water heater shall be set by the owner or agent at a temperature not higher than one hundred twenty degrees Fahrenheit.
