SOURCE: husky 372 xp stopped working?
you need to check to see if the piston is scored.pull the muffler off the saw and look inside.the piston is right there.if the piston is scored all you can do is change the piston and cylinder assembly.if the saw is new it might be under warranty.check with who you bought it from.most saws have a one year for consumer use.....let me know if this helped...................

Make sure someone hasn't run this saw without the oil in the fuel mixture. It is possible it is dry and some galling is happening. Or - if this saw is equipped with a compression bleeder (for easier starting), this could be not functioning and you're pulling through the normal compression (which can be a bit feisty!). Check for misalignment of some type having to do with the pull starter - check that the cord spool isn't rubbing on the housing when you pull. Good luck.

We have a Husky 435 that does the same thing. Found that the engine is trying to fire after first pull. Try setting the choke at 1/2 after first pull, but don't bump the throttle which will release 'fast idle'. This process seems to limit the 'kick back' effect. It also helps if you have a strong arm. Good luck!

SOURCE: cannot start saw because of
Not being able to pull the start cord because of "compression" is usually a sign that the cylinder head is full of fuel and/or oil. Take the spark plug out and try to pull again. look at what is in the cylinder, fuel mix or chain oil. If the engine turns over, pull several time to clear the cylinder. Clean the plug and put it back. Gas/oil in the cylinder means it is leaking into the crankcase. If it is chain oil in the cylinder, there most likely is a crack in the crankcase. If it fuel look for a leak the allows the fuel to get into the crankcase when it is stored.

SOURCE: Can't pull the starter cord,
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Remove the muffler and clean out the exhaust port and screen. You will have to disassemble the muffler and clean off or replace the screen item 8 of this link:
Before taking the muffler apart... unhook the spark plug and just pull it though with the muffler removed. If it pulls normally you know you have found the problem.
If it still pulls hard...check the exhaust port of the cylinder head for 2 tiny holes (not screw holes) Some have them some don't depending upon the year of the saw. If you do find 2 small holes that appear clogged with carbon... do your best to clean them out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
