It is doubtful that you would get water into the carburetor just from spraying it off. The carburetor area is sealed really well therefore it is really difficult to get water into it just from spraying or washing the machine.Most likely you have gotten the ignition wet, plug wires, plugs and it is not firing. Give the machine a little while to dry off and it will restart. If you can't wait for it to dry then you can try blowing it off with air either from an air compressor or your leaf blower if you have either one.
