Thank you for your question on the primary anode rod.

The anode rod is the hex nut on top of the water heater.

You will need to turn the water off to the water heater and beep the pressure off the tank.

Take a wrench and unscrew the anode rod cap from the top of the water heater tank.

The part number for the new anode rod is: 9001829.

Here is the link for ordering the anode rod.

Anode Rod part .

When you install the anode rod please use Teflon tape on the threads and make sure it is sealed.

I hope this will help.

Please read my question carefully. There is no nut on top of the water heater. It apparently is under something.

Thank you for the update on the anode rod location. I guess it is possible on your model that the anode rod nut is under a knock out plug on the top of the water heater. So look for a sectioned circle in the top of the water heater and carefully remove the cap and you also may have to remove some foam insulation. I will give you a picture from the owner's manual that shows location B as the anode rod. Most all water heaters have the nut exposed but it seems in your case that it is under a cap. Please let me know if you find it. Sam A.

Q:

Should I replace one or both heating elements in my water heater?

A:

Both heating elements generally do not work simultaneously. The only way to know which one is working would be to monitor the voltage at each heating element. Generally speaking the lower heating element usually fails before the upper one because it is closer to the sediment that collects in the bottom of the tank and comes on more frequently. It is also the element that cycles on first because of the temperature drop when water enters the tank.

I recommend replacing both elements since you have to drain the tank to clean flush the sediment out anyway.
