Why won't vinegar circulate while flusing tankless water heater?

Trying to flush Rheems tankless gas water heater. Turned off the gas first, then unplugged it per plumber's advice. Inlet and outlet valves all shut off. Hose connection valves on. Using a 1/6 horsepower pump. No flow of vinegar through the heater. Reversed hoses and got just a trickle. Cleaned filter, still nothing.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thanks for supplying me with this. The only thing I did differently was to shut off the valve to the outlet. Let me open it and see what happens. Thanks!
