The error code is to do with water flow.Most likley a bad solenoid

Where can I get get the water flow solenoid and what is the best way to remove it. Rheem won’t sell that part to customers. I know where it is located just inside the case on the cold water inlet.
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

I will see what I can find.May be easier if you can look on solenoid for a part number and Google it

See if this looks like your valve.Looks like solenoid is built onto valve

Sorry for the delay. I can’t see enough of the part to get information off of it. There are wires and lines secured in front of it that aren’t movable. I took pictures but couldn’t get them to load here. The picture you sent does not look like it would fit.
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

Really cant tell much either.The link I sent is the part number I show.

When my hardware store where I purchased this heater pulled up the current users manual, there has been some design changes on the outside even though it uses the same model number. There has probably been interior changes making the part you showed me the current one. The pics I sent you shows the copper lines and both go into the front of the part. Can you find me the servicemanual from 5 years ago and where I could get the water flow solenoid from that age of model?
HVAC Technician: airheatman, HVAC Technician replied 8 months ago

To see the one I have open this link then select Specs/ Docs then Use and Care Instructions.
