Ok, I have a sceneraio for those who are oppposed to tankless.

I have a customer that is going to need a water heater any time now, due to the condition of the 40 gallon tank.

They are a younger married company with 5 kids. Their oldest is 8 years old.
With a family of seven what would you put in for them?
What do they have gas or electric or oil?
I have 5 kids. My wife and me. Wifes grandma, and wifes sister all under my roof. We have a 50 gallon electric works fine.

Dishwasher has its own booster heater to raise it where it needs to be. Washing machine? Unique personal preference maybe. Code says not that hot... how do you argue with that one?
I'm not arguing. My dishwasher doesn't have a built in heater. When I used to do new construction we would run 2 hot lines 1 would be 120 for lavs and tubs. The other would be 140. that would feed the washer and dish washer.
For my house I like to take a hot shower. 120 wouldn't cut it. It wouldn't be bad to pre heat and then have it dump into a nother heater.
