Question about Whirlpool Water Heaters
There are several reason your Whirlpool water heater pilot may not light.
a. The gas supply is not turned on, or the main gas supply is off or blocked.
b. The gas supply is turned on, but you have air in the line. Holding the pilot control knob down and sparking the igniter every 60 seconds will eventually purge the air.
c. The water heater control valve is bad.
d. The oxygen safety sensor has tripped, and the control valve is locked out.
e. The pilot tub is clogged or the pilot orifac is blocked.
f. The thermocouple is bad and needs to be replaced.
Your water heater may still be under warranty. Call the 1-800 number on the tank and ask for help and free parts.
