First Thing----Did you have it Running While your Washed the Engine? If not you have got Water inside the Distributor Cap. Take it off and Dry it out VERY GOOD.

    Never Wash the Engine when the Vehicle is not Running or you get the No Start Problem Described Above. Let it set for a Few Days and it Might Dry itself out. People do it all the Time. Common Problem and Very Common Solution.

96 blazer.4.3 ltr crank fuel fuel and spark.still won't start

How about the fuel pump...are you getting the fuel to the cylinders? Is the fuel making it through the fuel line through the fuel filter? Drop a few drops in 1 cylinder, if it fires, you have a fuel problem. Does it turn over? If not check out the motor starter!
