I Don't Like Cold Showers! Help!

I have a Price Pfister single knob control for my shower that turns from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock counterclockwise. Suddenly, whenever I turn the control counter clock to the same position that I normally enjoy my HOT showers in (about the 8 o'clock position) the hot water is just a trickle, but with the usual mix of cold water. There is nothing wrong with the knob as it STILL turns the same, HOWEVER, the hot water now has much LESS pressure, thus, a colder shower. I've removed the knob and all plastic parts look normal. Do I have to remove anything under that? Thanks!

The mixing valve often gets sediment in it and will behave like this.
