Your bottom element is burned out. You will still get hot water from the top one, but like you said, not nearly as much.
Do a search for "appliance parts" and then enter your model number and you will be able to purchase the aprt online. Check a number of different sites as the prices can vary greatly. Many of these sites will have exploded views, so that you can see how they come apart and go back together. Wire the new element in exactly as you remove the old one. The bottom one will only have two wires so it is very easy.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!

You need to first make sure is the tankless who do the “up and down”! . If the problem manifest on more then one faucet then the problem is the unit. Have a thermometer (we use a infrared gun wich we train on Hot water pipe !) and see if actually the unit is the culprit.
If the problem is only on one shower It is possible also to be a “antyscalding valve” If the trigger valve on your shower is being adjusted too low then it trigger a splash of cold water now and then on regulate intervals. Try to adjust the temperature lower at the unit (say 110F ) and see if the problem change. If it does, then the problem is for sure in the faucet. If it does not change , then you have a problem with the water flow sensor . It is simply getting stuck. Bad bearing or even a piece of Teflon tape. I believe you will need a certified technician for that so no issues with your warranty will appear.

SOURCE: Hot water does not last long.
probably has a bad heating element. May be a little limed up also. Drain the heater and replace the elements. Take a special tool to remove and replace the elements. ( fairly cheap) You can probably get the elements and parts at a good hardware store. The people at the store probably will explain to you how to replace them. Feedback please if this was of help
