From the manual CleanShot 2050 Briggs and Stratton
Change Pump Oil
1. Drain engine oil and fuel from pressure washer
2. Use an 8 mm allen wrench to remove black pump oil cap between high pressure outlet and garden hose inlet.
3. Tiltl pressure washer to drain oil into an approved container until it drips slowly from pump.
4.Tilt pressure washer in opposite direction and empty premeasured pump oil bottle into same opening (a small funnel may be helpful) [THIS IS WHAT THE MANUAL SAYS-NOT CLEARLY WRITTEN IN MY OPINION OR WRITTEN BY SOMEONE FOR WHOM ENGLISH IS A SECOND LANGUAGE]
5. Install black pump oil cap and tighten firmly.
6. Set pressure washer in upright position. Add fuel and engine oil.
From the engine manual use synthetic 5w-30, 10w-30 from -20 degrees F to temperature of 100 degrees F.
Change oil after 5 hours of operation initially. Before tipping to drain oil, remove fuel from fuel tank by running until tank is empty. Remove oil cap and dipstick and tip engine. Keep spark plug side up. Or remove drain plug from the bottom of pressure washer with a ratchet and square extension and drain oil from bottom. (fuel does not have to be removed)

Blue smoke is def oil burning so I would guess that is the ain cause of the non running. It is possible that oil has got into the carb and jet . Turn fuel off and unscrew the slightly off set 10mm bolt on the bottom of the carb bowl to drain the fuel. If oil came out with the fuel then you should undo the other 10mm bolt and remove the bowl. Spray some carb cleaner around the floet and jet and also up the post that the bowl was fixed to as the jet is up there. Also, remove spark plug and pull over a few time to get rid of anything in the cylinder. Refit all back together and try again (don't forget to turn fuel back on).If it tarts it may run smokey for a few minutes while any oil residue burns off.
