My Craftsman pressure washer won't start. Why?

It is a model 580.752100, 2700 PSI. New fuel was added.
Oil was added. The spark plug is good. It has a new air filter.
Starter fluid did not assist in the motor turning over.
It was sitting for over 1 year.

I followed your directions. Carb is clean and getting fuel. I replaced the gaskets plus needle and seat (it was dried and stuck open). Compression is good. I'm getting spark. I changed the oil twice, since it smelled like gas when I pulled it out of storage. I put in new fuel. Still the same result, it is trying to start but doesn't. Any more advice? Thanks in advance.
