Question about Whirlpool Water Heaters
Called whirlpool and explained the problem. They said I need to replace that upper sensor and so they sent me a part in the mail which cost roughly $25. (usd) not including the overnight shipping which is around another $25 or so. This picture is what I received in the mail. Comes with directions of installment.

I have the exact same model. A few days ago, I noticed the six flash failure signal plus loss of hot water. I looked at the sensor - and being a passive component - I found it very hard to believe this item failed. It looked brand new. So I replaced the cap and reset the main controller board. It has been working fine ever since. I jiggled all the connectors to make sure I was getting good contact. Works like a champ again.

Just wanted to add my experience with this same problem. First time it happened was last year, about this same time of year. I ordered the part, paid $20 for shipping, and installed it when it came in. Everything worked fine until this year, when, with a house full of guests, it started flashing and shut down again. I called Whirlpool, got the same offer under warranty, and told them I'd rather buy a new hot water heater. Just before I hung up, the help desk person suggested I turn the control to off, and disconnect the sensor for 3 or 4 minutes, then plug the sensor back in and relight the pilot. I turned the control to OFF, disconnected the sensor and came back in an hour. I plugged the sensor in, and relit the hot water heater. That was 2 days ago -- it's been working ever since. Good luck!
