Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the unit fills and drains well, the issue likely lies with the heater pressure switch. The heater pressure switch is designed to keep the element off unless the water is present in the tub, to prevent overheating. Will it fill and drain okay?
