my gas hot water heater has a problem with the pilot staying on after a burn of the heater.I have replaced the thermocoupler, and it still doesn't stay lit after it is done heating the water. This started when I turned the heater all the way up to wash some clothes in very hot water. After 3 loads the pilot started to not stay on.
