\015\012I note that your question was 3 months ago. I answered a current post today that had your exact same symptoms. Your post was revealed after I answered the current post. Had I seen your post 90 days ago I would have responded with the same answer as follows:
\015\012
\015\012There is a low oil level sensor on the opposite side of the engine as the oil fill / dipstick. The next time that your presure washer acts up disconnect ONE wire to the oil level sensor. On pressure washers mose engines have the oil level sensor removed for just this reason. You tip the engine to move the power washer and you can not start it or.. if you move it with the unit running the oil level sensor kills the ignition. Just make sure that anytime you are going to use it that you ensure the oil level is properly serviced. (Each use)

There is yet another possibility. Debris in the bottom of the fuel bowl will draft directly into the lower fuel jet (Located inthe bowl nut area) with a tip of the unit and clog the fuel nozzle. You can prove you have a fuel problem simply by adding gas to the carb throat with the air filter removed. If you get a brief start... you have a fuel not a spark problem. Turn off the fuel selector... remove the fuel float bowl nut and drop the float bowl. Use carb cleaner in the threaded area to clean out the orifice in the body of the carb and then remove the debris from the float bowl. CLEAN the bowl nut also.

Use a spray can lid for the next step under the float bowl area.
BRIEFLY
Open the fuel selector and gently lift the float to level. Fuel must shut off when near level and re-start fuel flow as you lower the float. The spray paint can lid should fill up in 8 seconds or less. If you have poor fuel flow start looking at the bottom of the gas tank or an inline fuel filter as the problem. Some fuel selectors have tiny bowls under the fuel selector lever. Make sure to clean this out also if you have one.

Turn off the fuel selector. Reinstall the float bowl making sure the rubber bowl gasket is fitted properly. Fuel selector ON... leak test. Then test start the unit and see if your symptom is gone.
\015\012One more possibility. Your engine has and E-Z start valve that is supposed to be a compression relief. If this is sitcking / partially open ect.. it can make it hard to start your engine.

I really think you have a low oil level sensor issue that is grounding out the spark because it cycles to ground when you move the unit and is not... sensing the oil level properly after you move the unit. I clean oil level sensors with carb cleaner. You can wake up about 75% of them just by cleaning them off internally through the 2 side holes cleaning up to the contact area on the top of the sensor.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
