SOURCE: won't run with air filter on
I have a fairly new pressure washer with the same problem and discovered that because it was temporarily stored on its back (rather than upright), oil seeped into the air filter housing. If you look at the air filter it may not look like it has oil on it - especially if the oil is new. Mine runs fine without the air filter, but as soon as I put it in, it does the same as yours. I came across this site since I am looking to order a new filter. Hope this helps.

I have a Karcher pressure washer w/ a 5hp Honda engine. It only will run while the choke is pulled out and only runs at about half the rpm's. When the choke is pushed in.. it coughs, sputters and shuts off. Can you tell me how to fix this....

turn off water and machine electrics.
remove high pressure hose from front of machine, this may be tight if there is still pressure in the system.
turn on water, when water comes out of machine hose outlet turn on machine. does the machine turn on and water flow increase, if so you probably have a blocked lance jet or trigger.
remove lance extension if fitted and fit hose back to machine, try again. If its ok then this proves you have a blocked lance jet, maybea poke about with some stiff wire will free the obstruction.
If this doesnt bring on the machine you probably have a jammed pressure switch on the pump.
this pressure switch turns on the pump when the trigger is pulled and switches the motor off when the trigger is released.
hope this helps.

your not missing anything, check the pump, they tend to go bad over time and may need replacing. The pump provides the pressure as well as the suction for the whole process, pulling water from the hose or tank and pushing it forcefully through the pressure washer line. If the motor is running and you have the water going through the line and to the pump, and no water is coming out, my guess would be the pump.

I have the John Deere 3300 PSI washer. The unit has the John Deere name but was assembled by Briggs and Stratton and has a Briggs and Stratton engine. I also experienced the engine shut off after the unit ran several minutes. I also found the gas cap was not letting the gas tank vent. I loosened the cap and the engine runs fine.
I don't like leaving the gas cap loose. I am wondering if it might be practical to drill a small vent hole (1/8 inch) in the center of the cap?
