Hi,
I had the same problem and had it resolved by replacing the heater unit. I found out the heater was open (burned or deffective). I ordered the part (found in eBay) and replaced it by myself. I am not a technician or expert, I downloaded the service manual and tested the heater terminals while on test mode and discovered it was receiving voltage, but its circuit was open. I recommend you do this step before buying any parts, since I read in the forums that another possible failure is the PCB (main board), and in this case voltage is not sent to the heater. I hope it helps, good luck !

I went to take a shower this morning and the water was ice cold. For more than twenty minutes the water ran and never warmed up. Are there common things to check my hot water heater for in this situ


There is an adjustment knob to control how hot the water can become. There might be a problem at the tap (however, if this is the case, you would still get hot water everywhere in the house). If the entire house isn't getting hot water, and the knob is set at the hottest water, you probably need to get the hot water tank replaced.

How do I get the hot water work for my Fisher & Paykel Eco Smart washer?


How hot is the water temp in the house that you are in? If the inlet hose to the washer is not hot, then it is not the washing machine.

Its not getting hot on a hot wash


Washers don't really heat the water it should be connected to a cold water and a hotter water side if your washer is all the way across the house from the water heater it may take a while for the hot water to get to it but if it is getting water to it on the hot cycle the you have hot water hooked to it. Make sure you have both hoses connected to the right sides. Still no hot water you may have an element going out in your water heater.

I just bought a repo house which has a grundfos circulation pump u p 15 installed at the water heater. House built 2005 4260 sq. Feet. House has 4 showers only one of them gets hot water. All sinks get hot...


that pump is likely to be a hot water return pump not a booster pump. it sound like a large property so its likely the hot water system requires balancing to get the hot water to the extreme areas. If all the hot outlets have some form of isolation valve try closing all but the affected areas and see if hot water comes out. If so only open the closed outlets enough to give you reasonable flow. This hopefully will force the hot water to the affected areas.

Hot water gets too hot trips off at tank then water gets cool and i push reset button and water gets hot again real hot thentrips off again


It's time to replace your thermostat. Instead of maintaing the correct water temperature, the water is getting so hot it is acivating the safety circuit breaker. If this breaker were to fail, you could have a devastating explosion

Hot water comes out cold side for few seconds and gets cold, no hot from hot side, only cold


Make sure that the water pipes for the cold water coming in and the hot water going out are connected to the correct positions on the water heater. If the connections get reversed, the water that is supposed to be hot will be drawn from the bottom of the tank and will not be as hot as it should be. The cold water input goes to the bottom of the tank. The hot water out comes from the top of the tank.

Low amount of hot water


You say a very new water heater. You won't get 40 gallons of hot water from a 40 gallon water heater because the continuing influx of cold water will cool your hot water down. However, it appears that your bottom water heater element needs replacing. If the top element is bad, you'll get no hot water. If your bottom element is bad, you'll get "some" hot water. Try replacing the bottom element. DON'T FORGET to turn off the electricity AND water first (closeby towels are also handy)!

It sounds like you have the hot and cold water lines to the washer reversed.  Try turning off the tap for the hot water then setting the washer to just cold wash and then  hot washif you get nothing on the cold and cold water when set to hot they are probably reversed.  Typically if the auto-temp control is broken you will only get hot or cold coming out on any setting.

No hot water to wash


Is the hot water hot that is coming to the washer? Are you using the correct settings on the unit? If yes to both then either the solinoid water valve is bad or the timer switch unit is bad. Try going to a totally hot water setting. While turning on the machine feel of the hot water line at the machine and see if you notice a buzz or feel a click as you turn on the machine. On this setting does water run in and is it hot or cold. If water runs and it is cold try going to a total cold setting and see if you get cold or hot water. Is this a new setup or has it been working and stopped? If new, you could have the hoses connected backward. If you get water in both hot and cold settings but cold both ways then your hot water heater is not working....let me know....
