If you can light the pilot and it will stay lit while you are holding the button down but goes out when you release it then you need to replace the thermocouple.First turn gas valvle to off then remove the thermocouple line from bottom of the gas valve. It is the copper colored line that goes into the burner compartment and mounts in front of the pilot light..If your water heater is a sealed combustion with the cover screwed in place it is easier to disconnect gas line and pilot line from the gas valve also. Then take cover off and slide burner assembly out. The thermocouples come in many lengths so get one at hardware store that is at least as long as the one that is on there. The thermocouple slides into place in holder and is held there by friction. Try to center it as far in holder as it will go and make sure it is centered in pilot light. Reassembly being careful not to cross thread fittings into gas valve. Relight and hopefully you have fixed your problem. Thank you.
