Question about Whirlpool Water Heaters
While the power is off to the water heater it's safe to remove the access panels. Once the elements are exposed a multimeter that is set on the Ohms can be used. The average reading of a good element is around 12 ohms. This can range a few ohms up or down. If you don't get a good reading the element will need to be replaced.
If the water heater has two elements the top element should be checked first. When a Whirlpool heater has two elements and the top goes out this will cause the water heater not to heat at all.
If both elements show they are good it would be recommended to contact the manufacturer. The technical support line for the Whirlpool water heaters is 1-877-817-6750.
