    When you dilute ethanoic acid the pH will increase. This is because by diluting the acid you are reducing [H+] and the pH will therefore rise as the solution becomes less acidic.

    Perhaps, the OP meant why doesn't the pH increase by much, i.e. compared to a strong acid, e.g. HCl.

    The answer is based on Le Chetalier.
