Have you checked both to insure the burner is working and that you have electric to the heating element and also checked the element is servicable with a multimeter. If both are working and the tank is full of water then yes the bypass would prevent hot water from the faucet and from filling heater tank
if the bypass is in the correct position and you have water in the heater,as rvhauler stated, if you still get no hot water, it is probably the check valve on the hot water heater outlet. A likely condition you might see if it is not completely stuck shut would be a little burp of hot water, then cold water. It is a less than $10.00 part. I had to replace mine several weeks ago.
I have never understood the purpose of a "hot" water heater. If the water is hot, why heat it? You know what I'm saying, Vern.

I am going to let the dealer work on it but I am camping now. Where us that check valve at? On second thought I don't think that is the problem because I can't even get the gas to work To use it. So I have no electric and no gas on the hot water heater. I have checked the bypass and everything is right on that end.
I have the light switch for the gas with all my other controls. It turns Red when u turn it on but no pilot light or anything. Breaker is on and the on switch on the water heater is on and still no hot water.
