It may be bad thermostat terminals of the water heater, adjust the thermostat settings. Reset and then test the replaced thermostats or heating elements. or, alternatively, the very top heating element is in need of replacement. See this handy diagnostic article for more info:
This is the general precedure,how to reset thermostat....
Most electric hot water heaters have two thermostats, one near the top of the tank and one near the bottom, and are covered by removable metal cover plates. The thermostats are pressed firmly against the bare metal wall of the hot water heaters tank.
The top thermostat usually has a high limit switch that will trip if the water gets too hot. When it trips it shuts off the electricity to both the upper and lower heating elements.
To reset the high limit switch there is usually a red button that you must press. When the upper limit switch trips it is often an indication that something else has gone wrong with the heater.
