Welcome to the forums.

Whirlpool Geyser ? Not familiar with that name.
You are the second member today with a pilot/ignition problem.
I'm not familiar with the Whirlpool water heaters but they are made by American Water Heater and sold at Lowes.

A "no spark" problem when depressing the pilot igniter is different than no pilot. If you don't get a spark..... it's either a defective spark generator or there is rust or debris on the burner shorting the igniter.
