If your inlet and outlet are at the top of the photo then your bypass valve is on the wrong side.

It needs to be before the inlet valve and after the outlet valve.

Right now water is flowing into the heater and through the bypass valve to the hot side. So it's not bypassing anything.

Closing the bypass valve will make water go through the heater, but you still don't know what's causing the blockage.

I cut all of those valves in the clear and started from scratch. Rebuild the inlet and outlet from the tank itself- works great. - ALmost bit the bullet and spent $375.00 on a new hot water heater.- Could not have solved this w/o your help!!!
