it's working now. What's different? When it wasn't working before, the red reset button on the interior panel was not lit. Despite that, I tried pushing the reset buttons on the water heater but it didn't fix the problem.
So I thought I'd try it one more time and this time the red reset button on the panel lit and the igniter started, I turned on the propane and it lit.
Thanks for trying to help but I still wonder what might have been the problem.
