Well, From my experience what happens is on a electric water heater, (not gas). The heating element at the bottom of the water heater is fried. The reason why is that lime deposits over the years will completely bury the heating element and that is why it get burnt out.
Can fix it yourself - but pretty messy. turn off/unplug, breaker for water heater. Shut off water to heater. Messy part - this is fun - figure out out to drain the water tank which is near the bottom of the tank. - good luck on that!
Will find the entire bottom encrusted with lime deposits - won't even be able to get the element out until poke and prod that crap out that small hole - yup this could take hours......
Once clean up entire bottom from deposits, the element could still be working - but after all that work - just get a new element so don't have to go through all that mess again.
If's it's gas heater - check your pilot light, etc......
