I have a Bradford White gas water heater. As of this

I have a Bradford White gas water heater. As of this morning, there is no hot water in the faucets.My boiler seems to be working fine (I tested the house heater, and It works.)Things I noticed:1. The 'call for heat' light does not turn on [on the boiler] when I turn the hot water in the faucets.2. The 'call for heat' light does turn on when I turn on the house heater (CH).3. The hot water heater emits 0 sounds. As it It was off.Things I've done:1. I pressed the reset button on the water heater. Nothing happens.2. I tested the power cable (between the zone valve and the water tank) for voltage. I got no watts, but I don't know If this is expected.3. Two months ago I replaced the zone valve that goes form the boiler to the water heater.4. All the power cables seem fine.5. There is gas as the home heaters work.Water heater tank: Bradford White M2P40R1013Boiler: Weil McLain CGS Gold CO15
