To replace it you will it in the middle of the heat.You will have to have a big wrench or socket to fix it.First turn water off and release psI.Then there won't be a problem to replace.

It looks like a plug screwed into the top of the water heater (it IS plugging the hole so turn off water and release pressure b4 removing)

try setting the bottom 10 degrees hoter than the top could be in short cycle (thatis the bottom calls for heat on the bottom element and set too close so goes back to top and cycles off

You may have a burned out element that is the most common cause of cold water. if you turn the hot water on only and it does not warm up then you have a burnt element. There are two elements on the heater, if you turn the power off and use a ohm meter to check between the terminals of the two heating elements if it does not move the the element is blown and you can unscrew it and take it to any hardware store and buy a new one. If it was plugged with rust water would not run out at all. The heaters come in 1500 and 2500 watt ratings and is printed on the outside of the element. to replace you will have to turn the water off and drain the tank and remove the hot water heater element.

Testimonial: "I replaced both elements last night, and also flushed the tank a bit (cold water valve and drain open after tank was empty). Hot shower today!"
Anode rods for tank-type water heaters are located on top of tank.
This is true since anodes are about 44" long.
Top of anode is standard 1-1/16" hex nut.
Anodes can be located in 2 different places: either directly screwed into top of tank -or- attached to hot water nipple.
Most times the exploded parts diagram in manual simply shows 'anode rod' without specifing exact location. If your tank has long warranty, then it can have two anode rods, and 1 will be on top and the other probably attached to hot water nipple, or there could be two anodes screwed into top of tank.
If anode is screwed into top of tank, then it will be under a plastic cap -or- it will be concealed under the top cover of tank.
Look for plastic cap, and if none shows, then remove screws holding down metal cover and look there for 1-1/16" hex nut.
Lastly, remove hot water nipple and check for anode located there.
If you have 2 anode rods, then replace with same metal for each.
