A lot of problems can contribute to this problem.
As you know, tankless cannot be exposed to water with more than 11 grains of hardness.
Tankless require softener and filter system which can affect line pressure and flow, which will adversely affect tankless unit.

The problem could be clogged sensor, bad board, but still that doesn't explain burned out elements unless the elements were coated with sediment.
Sediment build up will kill a tankless within 2 years and render it useless and unfixable.
Yearly deliming will not restore functionality.
If pressure is a contributing factor, you can add a pressure tank that will even out the pressure.
All in all it looks like the pressure sensors and other sensors are crashing.
Call service technician, and glean from that person the tips and tricks.

Read the manual for advisories and required yearly maintenance.

You can fix this tankless problem yourself, same day, by installing $207 tank-type electric water heater from box store. Offer 10% less and also buy flexible connectors to connect to existing water lines. The cost of running and maintaining electric tank-type is cheaper long term. All costs are energy.

Hot water will only work if the heating is on?


I take it you are in a new (to you) house. Sounds like you have "tankless" hot water, which means the same burner that heats the house also heats the hot water for your sinks and shower. So as a minimum, yes the power to the furnace must be on, but that doesn't mean you have to heat the house. You can turn down the thermostat and leave the power to the furnace "on". To save a few bucks, turn it off when you go away for the weekend, or even for the day, the response time to heat it up is usually pretty fast.

Bath tub water doesn't stay hot


it is because the tub has a temp control valve in it so if you were to put more cold with the hot it will last longer but still won't be all the way hot,, now a days people are suing the manifacture because they are getting burned form the hot water so they put these saftey temp controls in place of the old style 2 or 3 handle faucets,, there fo no more real hot water nothing you can do outside of change to the othere type of faucet 2 or 3 handle tub shower diverter,, that why the water is hot in the sink but not the tub.....

Whirlpool Energy Smart water heater not hot


I think some one mis informed you, the normal temp on any water heater from the factory is 120, it should not go above that for reasons of sevear burns, as far as it't smart part it's just a name, you will lose a couple of degrees just comming torm the tank to the faucets, the water heater will allways keep the temp in the tank at what ever it is set at, it doesn't have the brains or computer to know what time of day it is but when the cold water comes in to the tank it comes thru a dip tube that goes to aprox 1 inch from the bottom of the tank, if you take a long shower and do not have a energy efficant shower head you can use up to 5 gals, per min of hot water where an energy efficant one only uses 2.5 or less and still has the same pressure at the shower head, the temp in your water heater tries to stay at the setting it is at depending on how much is used at one time meaning washing machine, filling tub or dishwasher at the same time, it lets more cold in as the hot goes out and as you know it can only heat up so much at a time and the cold water is just going across the bottom of the tank, so the name is just that no diffrent then any other water heater unless you went to a tankless water heater.

At shower time in the morning the hot water varies from cold on one day medium on another and hot on any given day. What's wrong?


Do you share your hot water with anyone? Is anyone washing dishes, laundry, etc before you shower? How old is your hot water heater? If it has filled with sediment, your hot water is limited. Try turning up the heat control valve on the hot water heater, only go up one notch today, then if not enough another the next day. Be cautious of scaulding hot water after turning it up.
