There are basically three things that can go wrong with the Warm Morning .
Sensor shut off. There is a sensor button on the back of the unit with a wire going from it to the thermocouple. This sensor turns the heater off if the flue is blocked, however it will also shut the heater off if the wire contacts are dirty, or if the sensor has gone bad.
You can test this by bypassing the sensor. Disconnect the two wires from the sensor and reconnect them directly together. If the pilot stays on, your problem is here. Try cleaning the wire contacts first.
Pilot orifice. If the pilot flame is small and doesnt look healthy, the pilot orifice may need cleaning. The hole is very small and can get dirty. Disconnect the silver tube and clean with electrical parts cleaner. Never try to clean the hole with an object like a pin, you may damage it. You may have to slide out the burner unit to get at the silver tube. (Always shut off gas before disconnecting lines and after you reassemble, spray joints with soapywater and look for small bubbles which may indicate a gas leak. Dont use parts cleaner around an open flame.)
Thermocouple can go bad but this is not as common as the first two problems.

there is a small adjustment screw on the gas valve,turn it clockwise to increase pilot,if that does not work the vent cap on the gas regulator on the back of the unit could be stopped up,remove that cap ,clean out or replace unit can operate without it just fine.If you increase the pilot and it still wont stay lit replace the thermocouple

The next step is to replace the thermal sensor. This device senses if the pilot went out or not and can shut off gas. These items fail over time.

If pilot lights and flame is robust and clear blue, and pilot goes out later, then some suspects can be excluded: air in gas line, low gas pressure, thermocouple is overtightened (finger-tight + 1/4 turn), thermocouple not positioned correctly in the flame, dirty pilot tube.
If flame is yellowish and small: then clean pilot tube and combustion parts.
Remaining suspects can include: air in gas line, low gas pressure, bad gas control valve, tight house so household vent fans pull air down water heater vent that blows out pilot, hot attic with inadequate ventilation, water dripping down vent.

1) Get more air to the water heater and see if problem continues.
2) Read the following pdf-s for things that might apply to your situation.
3) Read pdfs above first, and then Add a comment with missing information below, for possible do-it-yourself help.
Does this water heater have a blower?
Is gas valve electronic? Or does gas valve have a dial?
If gas valve is electronic, have you checked outlet with circuit analyzer?
Did pilot light work correctly for a while? If so how long?
Where is water heater located? Hot attic? Closet? Garage? Is area dirty and dusty? Has air intake been cleaned?
What color is pilot flame? Clear blue or yellow-or-orange?
Have you inspected inside of combustion chamber for dripping water?
