Question about Whirlpool 28 Gallon Electric Mobile Home Hot Water Heater Low Boy
One day working - not the next; currently checking to see if power to heater; trying to drain but no flushing when valve is opening- no sediment when I turn the pressure back on
The new tankless instant water heaters are very inexpensive now. Sometimes even less than a tank type. And they take up a fraction of the space.

The unit doesn't like to drain without air coming in on top of water, so flushing with pressure applied is the preferred way. Be careful, see if you have power coming into unit. Turn off power and open the connection connection plate I would suspect that if the breaker is supplying power, sometime I have found that the connections are not properly made.. . If you a timer to limit operational hours take it out and go directly to romex from breaker panel.I f water starts hot and then go cool very quickly the bottom heating element and or thermostat is not working. Remove lower element cover and with power off check element resistance you can compare upper and lower element readings. From experience I never repair water heaters: time and material is more than new unit. You will need to buy element socket heating element(s) and or thermostat(s). In the end you still and old water heater.
