You most likely need to set your valve clearances. If it is hard to
pull over or the recoil snaps back after starting your valves need to
be set for sure. This may not be the entire problem but it is a good
start. Also change the spark plug, a bad plug will cause odd problems
and is too cheap not to eliminate as a source. In addition check your
fuel, pour a little out into a white container (I like spray paint can
caps for this) and look at the color. If it is yellow to orange it is
bad. You can pour it into you car, the car electronic sensors will
compinsate for it quality but a small engine can't. Use a NGK BP6ES or
10mm open end wrench
14mm open end wrench
1 long shaft screw driver or rod
1 spark plug socket and ratchet
Remove the spark plug and the valve cover. Pull the recoil over slowly until the intake valve opens (intake is closes to the carb and it will go down when it opens). Now put your long screwdrive down the spark plug hole. Slow pull the engine over until the screwdriver handle is at it highest point, this is top dead center. It may take a few attempts. Now check your valve clearance between the rockers and the top of the valve. The intake should be .006 and the exhaust .008, both can be +/- .001. To adjust: hold the large nut with the 14mm then loosen the small one with the 10mm. Lefty loosey. Now turn your large nut until you get the correct setting and then tighten the small one the lock it in. It may take a few attempts and alway reverify your setting after you lock it down. Once done, find top dead center again and reverify. Now your valves are set.

Sounds like pump is not making pressure. Thats why you get flow, but no pressure.
If it sat for awhile, check shaft connection to pump. Sometimes the impeller or shaft will shear partially due to corrosion when stored. Seals on pump valves could be gone too. Get an exploded diagram, usually from owners manual, easily found for this model. Parts list should have "pump repair kit" with everything needed to bring it back to life.
You and a friend put it on the bench to work on it and save your back. The pumps are pretty easy to take apart and put back in working order.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I think seals are the answer as it sometimes makes pressure for a minute then goes away. Jerry"
It could be the low oil cut off stitch, make sure the oil is clean and full, and the switch wiring is tight. Next is bad gas, water remover and octane booster can fix this, finally, replace the spark plug, as they are known to go bad quickly by the vibrations of these tools.

SOURCE: Honda 5HP pressure washer.
Most small pressure washers do not have an automatic throttle control to increase engine speed on demand (activated by trigger on wand). You must set the governor/throttle to about max. to get the rated pressure. A honda motor produces 5 hp when it is turning about 3600 rpm. To increase the life of the pump, use about 80 % of capacity of the pump and increase only for stubborn debris.
