SOURCE: Pressure washer with no pressure
Are you priming the water lines before you switch on the power?
i.e. with power OFF, hook up hose and turn hose on (doesn't need to have much hose pressure), then take your spray gun or attachment and pull the trigger and allow water to flow through the system (at hose pressure obviously). You might need to gravity feed it if its not flowing through...
But you will generally only get pressure once all the air is removed from the lines and the pump is pushing water only... Once you have water flow and lines are primed, switch on pump and see if that solves it.

You've hit the nail on the head.The float,needle and seat are stuck wide open.Once the carburetor bowl is full of fuel the float rises up on top which pushes the needle back into the seat shutting of the flow of fuel.As the engine consumes that fuel the float drops and opens the needle and seat filling the bowl and shutting off the fuel again.Things that cause this process to not work are:forgetting to empty or run out the fuel before storing it for the winter.Sediment buildup in the bowl.Mineral deposits in the needle and seat.
Not emptying out the carb can leave water in the bowl which freezes,crushing the float.It also promotes sediment buildup and mineral deposits.The float when crushed or cracked will not float,nor shut off fuel.Sediment takes away capacity of fuel in the bowl,very necessary for wide open throttle.Mineral deposits build up to the point that the needle and seat can't make a good seal so fuel will continue into the carburetor.
Enough information yet?
To repair,take the nut off the bottom of the carburetor bowl.There are the float and needle and seat assemblies.All three need to be replaced,$10 max.After you get the parts replace one piece at a time so you can see how they go together.Next replace the spark plug, engine oil and air cleaner.They are fuel fouled and even if you could get the engine started will only add more damage to your engine.BEFORE you put the new plug in cycle the engine by pulling the starting cord a few times to get rid of the excess fuel.When there's now more fuel in the cylinder replace the plug,filter and oil.
That's it!Take your time and you can do it just fine.Re-post if you have any more troubles.

The nozzle on the end of the spray wand has a very small hole in it that can be easily clogged by any sort of debris that comes through the water supply.If the nozzle can be removed, just take a pin & clear the hole from the outside & rinse it off. If the nozzle can't be removed, then take the wand apart at the connector in the middle and do the same thing.

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)
