Question about Garden
The engine runs like it is trying to pump, no water is discharging from where the pressure hose attaches. When the hose is attached, you can hear the pressure build up, and when the handel is engaged, it squirts for a second then nothing.
You may need to have the pump replaced. Most Husky pumps under 3000 psi don't have parts available. If you bought it within two years, the pump should still be under warranty. Check with Home Depot for service centers near you. They should be able to verify if it qualifies for a free replacement based on the serial number.

I have a similar problem and diagnosed it to be a problem with the gun. I spoke to a technician that services this pressure washer and he walked me through all the diagnostic steps. The pump is working because there is pressure being built up and the gun sort of works because you can get water out before the washer is started. The technician said that the mechanism inside the gun is either clogged or broken. I am going to Home Depot or Lowes to purchase a new gun and will try it tonight. Guns are only about $30-40. He said generic is fine as long as the thread matches and PSI is in range. Good luck!

It sounds like your bypass valve/unloader valve is sticking when pressure builds up in the lance,hose and head the pressure cleaner changes to a recirculate mode so it does not blow out hoses or seals or causes any damage to the unit, the bypass valve is the component that activates this sequence if that valve is stuck it will just try to continue to create pressure which in turn puts load on the engine and stalls it...
That is why it starts up straight away and only when it builds up pressure is when the engine stalls.
You would be best taking this to a qualified pressure cleaner technician as there are alot of little parts and orings plus the the head will need cleaning up and the bypass valve lubed, they may not of seen this at the service as it is hard to test a unit without the suited hose and lance... Often use will help this problem when a unit sits for a period of time that will cause issues such as this!!!
