Question about Whirlpool Water Heaters
This can be two common things:
1. Carbon buildup at the pilot orifice (where the gas comes out). This can be cleaned with carburetor cleaner, but make sure the gas is off first (important!).
2. The thermocouple is either bad, displaced or it too is carboned up like the pilot assembly described above.
If you clean everything and the pilot still keeps going out, replace the thermocouple. Make sure the thermocouple is squarely in the flam path.
