SOURCE: I have a electric whirlpool 50 gal. energy saver

the thermostat should be replaced it only has one on the upper eloement, it has the dial on it to set the temp, but if it is only 3 months old it comes with a 1 year parts 6 year tank warranty, if you call whirlpool and tell them about this problem they will have there own teck or sub contractor that they use to come out and fix it for free,,, first go to there web site and put in your serial number and it will tell you how old the unit is, sometimes they sit for a while and are actually out of warranty before it is installed,, also did you install it your self?? if you did di you fill it with water all the way till the water came out of the hot side on your faucet full force before turning on the electric,, if not you have fried the whole unit, you will need to replace both elements and the thermostat, the elements must be completely submerged in water before they have the power turned on,,,

SOURCE: Clean LED is blinking, manual says check heater

Heater element shorted, a resistor on the control board is visibly fried which makes it inoperable. Estimate to replace both is at least $300. This is terrible design, should be a protection fuse on the control panel. Chances are this will happen again after the repair, design has not been modified. We invested our money in a replacement w/a one year warranty. Rather than 90 days for parts and service.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Water Heater problem model FG1F4040S3NOV.

I will bet that it has to do with the gas. Probably not breathing right. First check to see if you have the right water heater; inside or outside. Call the manufacturer and have the model and serial number ready. If it is the right one, make sure that it is vented properly, both intake and exhaust. The intake is located on the bottom, probably covered by a plastic screen, make sure that it is clean. Won't hurt to vacuum the immediate area. If it is in a closed off space, it needs to have sufficient enough air to breathe. There needs to be a vent through the door or wall. If this does not solve the problem, have a qualified technician pull the burner out and clean it.

Water heater heats water and then cuts off. I replaced the lower element with a guaranteed for life element. It still heats up and cuts off. There is a control box on top that allows for an easy reset. ...


1) Bad thermostat or thermistor depending on model.
Whirlpool/Craftmaster/American energy smart has control box on top, and you can order parts from Whirlpool.

2) Copy following links to help identify product.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Whirlpool-Energy-Smart-electric.html

3) Add a comment with more detailed information:
You have electric water heater.
Unknown brand, possibly energy-smart.
Unknown control box.
Cut off? Do you mean 'reset' is tripped?

4) Whirlpool energy smart requires 10 gauge wire and 30 amp breaker.
Control panel may not function with undersized electric supply.
Control panel has blinking-light errors ... if no error code then maybe the control box is bad.

Need a manual for a maytag electric water heater. model # HE2950S


More information is needed about this heater.

The label located on side of tank should show manufacturer.

Maytag does not manufacture water heaters.
Maytag is a brand name used to market water heaters made by other companies.
Maytag offers a phone number for water heaters:1-866-362-9898

Other resources:
-If the water heater has electronic control box on top, then following American Water Heater Company manual might be suitable:

-Electric water heater instruction manuals can be found on following link:
Each is basically the same, unless there is electronic control box.

Water heater is not identified.
Add a comment with information that appears on label on side of tank for possible help.
You might be talking about Whirlpool energy smart electric.
The error diagnostic lights flash a code: the code decipher is printed on the diagnostic control box on top of heater.
Call Whirlpool: you need model number and serial number from label located on side of tank.

This sounds like the Themal Relief valve is not working properly. Some of these valves have a lever that you can lift to PURGE the valve of debris. If there is too much debris in the valve it lodges in the valve seat and caused blow-by / leakage. In the evnt that your thermal relief valve does NOT have a purge lever and you can not get the valve to seat after going as far as remving it to clean it then it should be replaced. The relief valve is Item 8 of this link:

I have a Reliance water heater - 40 gal Model


In my first 15 years as a plumber I never saw a pilot light issue on a gas WH that a new thermocouple didn't fix. Since the government mandated a redesign of the fire box, I've seen three that nothing ever fixed - two Whirlpools and one (my usually ultrareliable) AO Smith - including replacing the entire burner assembly and the regulator. And I've heard of many others.

Check the thermocouple connection for tight. (Don't strip.. threaded soft metals.)
Check the microvents on the bottom ? of the burn box for dust, even if it is new.
Call Reliant and demand new units until you get one that works.
Try another model. Consider a 52gal electric.

I've always recommended gas over electric, and AO Smith and Rheem were my recommendations (and "Reliants" were "lumber yard" water heaters. Sorry.)

Since the mandated redesigns, I don't really have a "proven reliable" model to suggest. I increasingly believe the restricted air flow design is the ultimate culprit, including any changes to the thermocouple/regulator construct to accommodate the restricted air flow design. Just my hunch.

Offered for what its worth. -- plumber in Indiana.
