Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when having trouble with the water heater.

When the heater stalls can sure be terrible while in a shower or bath.  If your water heater has suddenly stopped working the problem is most likely caused by the heater's therma safety switch, which distributes power to the heating elements when the water heats abobe the 170 degree Farenheit.  The thermal safety switch can often be reset by holding the button, on your machine they call the temperature release valve.

If that is not your problem.   Run a meter to your heating elements and see if both have continuity.

If you have further questions please let me know.
Thanks for choosing Sears
