Sounds like the heating element is gone. Look up the code on the manufacturer's web site under customer support.

possibly the lower element has failed on it . that seems to always be the first one to burn out as sediment gets coated on it . turn power off and use ohm meter to test for dead short or open element

Check out the flue for a mouse nest. If that is all clear check the settings and try different settings. If you are using natural gas to run it check to verify that it is not a propane water heater.

Old question, but I will leave the answer for other people looking for it.
Since the Fan and/or pump start, this means that the divertor valve is working (check the mini-switch on the divertor valve if it's "clicking" when you open the hot-water tap)
So, next is line - do you hear sparks? As if it's trying to light up? If not, it's the mainboard with an issue.
If you hear the sparks, next in line is the gas valve. That needs to open for the gas to flow. That valve can also break. It's a honeywell valve.

It’s obviously leaking. If Liner is leaking replace heater. If piping is leaking, replace leaking pipe.

You didnt indicate whether the switch was defective or not. From looking at the image, it appears that the identified conductor (white) was cut. Have you tried to reconnect the wire (white to white) and see if the heater is working?

if it is the threads leaking., you can #1 shut the water heater down or turn it to pilot. #2 carefully loosen the top connector to the valve, #3 remove valve #4 apply teflon tape, usually 3 raps nO more than 5 to the male threads #5 carefully reassemble. turn from pilot to normal. if the water heater continues to leak it is possible that you observed leakage from the valve but the tank itself needs replaced. hope this helps.
