In Topic: Whirlpool EE3J40RD045V Electric Water Heater is making loud clicking noises.

Final report - I called the Whirlpool warranty number and talked to a very nice service person. She asked me a couple questions about symptoms and ohm readings for the two sensors (~40K each) and two elements (14 ohms each). Since these are correct, she concluded that my board was faulty. As I had a twelve year warranty on both the tank and other components, she shipped a new board to me FedEx overnight, no charge. I installed it, applied power, and everything works.
Thank you, Whirlpool. You have done everything exactly right to make it right.

I uploaded the manual for this Whirlpool EE3J40RD045V Electric Water Heater, circa 2005

I have an older model than the one shone, without digital readouts. Mine was purchased in 2005. I found the manual for it. (BTW, should I upload my manual to the forum?) The symptoms are settling down. Now I have no hot water at all and the blinking error light tells me that it hit the high limit. After cutting the power, I discovered that one of the 4 control relays, (controls the lower element) is permanently closed, thus the lower element gets continuous power and eventually trips the safety relays. I will be calling Whirlpool in the morning for a board replacement under warranty. Wish me luck.

My concern isn't that it is cycling. It's that it is doing so very noisily. I would have thought that it would have a solid-state relay, rather than electro-mechanical. I guess I will have to open it up and watch it cycle.

Thanks for your help, guys.
I replaced the circuit board and all is well. There was nothing to see on the old board,(no burned points on the relay, for instance). I'm guessing that the problem was related to the time-delay circuitry.
Thanks again.
