Is it a new unit? If so, the safety mechanism may has tripped. If it is a GE built be Rheem, the safety device is a one time device - you have to replace the water heater. Check to maek sure you don't having a venting problem.

The whirlpool water heater does not light bright enough to lite the pilot lite for the burner


Check the gas control valve and also the thermocouple. Be very careful of a back flash it will burn your hands, arms and face if they are to close.

Wiring diagram on whirlpool gas water heater


Whirlpool is AO Smith tank-type heater.
Year, model, type of heater not known.
So add a comment and then expert can look up the manual.

You probably have power vent, or dampered water heater, otherwise the only wiring would be for thermopile, thermal reset, and igniter.
Power vent, or dampered, of flow control water heaters plug into outlet, and wires from gas control run to the various components.
Copy following link to troubleshoot by type of gas control valve:

Don't forget to add comment and include model number that shows on label located side of tank.

Where can i get a 21dv50 water heater to buy


21dv50 is discontinued. This is ordinary tank-type 50 gallon gas water heater.
Amazon sells 50 gallon 22V50F1 Rheem water heater for $420 with free shipping ... but who carries the warranty?

Frankly you can get in-store returns, and buy same quality gas water heater at local box store since Rheem makes GE water heaters at home Depot.
Other brands are equally good, as AO Smith makes Kenmore water heaters at Sears and Whirlpool at Lowes.

I prefer the AO Smith because maintenance is easier.
