Likely that the lower element developed a crack in the sheath which allows heating at a slow rate to continue after the lower thermostat opens. heating will continue until the ECO (red button) trips both legs open. You will get full power on the top element giving you about 15 gallons of hot water thus resulting in your 10 minute shower.
