Question about Garden
I'd pull the fuel hose leading to the carburetor and see how well gas flows out of this hose. if it just trickles out, the either something in the tank is obstructing it or the vent is blocked. the tank has to vent to allow air in as gas flows out to the carb. most vents are built into the gas cap by little hole(s) on it. see if the hole is blocked on the bottom side of the cap with ****. if unsure, start the pressure washer with the cap off and see if it runs for longer than 30 seconds. if it does, either clean the cap or get a new one.
also, some pressure washers need water flowing to the unit before you start it. if it senses no water, it may turn its self off to protect it. not sure how smart this washer is, but just another suggestion.

Check to see if the spark plug cap is grounding to the engine. Look for a spark where the cap is closest to the engine.
