I was using the Pressure Washer with no problems. It shut off, I refueled and checked oil and all was okay. Engine will not start now. Checked the filter, primed it 3x pulled cord and no start. What am I doing wrong?

Hi my name is ***** ***** thank you for using Just Answer. I will be assisting you today. Something shut it off and now it won't restart , a engine needs spark , fuel and compression to run , let's try removing the air filter and shooting a little bit of gas into the carburetor and let's see if it will start momentarily

This will tell us if it's a fuel or carburetor issue , if it doesn't even sputter my next concern is maybe a push rod got bent etc
