Have a local pro scan for codes it may be an abs problem even though light isn't on. Front brakes will normally be hot to touch anyhow.

Your scanner can't check each system of an abs like a pro model can it will only show codes and erase them nothing else. If you have replaced thehoses and your caliper doesn't stick and slides easily then it has to be an abs problem you might recheck the things I've just mentioned prior to having a pro look at it. Make sure your caliper pins aren't hanging up. If your brake fluid wasn't changed until now it may have gotten a piece of junk in abs unit causing it. You might try a power bleeder to rebleed the system once again if you didn't already
