Have you drained the carburetor float bowl? Pressure washers always seem to get water in the carburetor bowl. For test to see if engine will run remove the spark plug and put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the cylinder, re-install the spark pug and see it it will run for a few seconds. If it does, the carburetor is not letting fuel to the cylinder.
