List the combine make and model as that may help if its a model specific quirk someone is familiar with.
I would get an assistant to be in the cab and of course in neutral etc and be out of the way of all belts/fan in case it decides to turn over, either use a test light or a volt meter and test at the start terminal on the starter solenoid when the key is turned, if you get power then a chance of moisture issues with the solenoid but if no power evident or very low/weak voltage then start going backwards through the system as there may be a secondary relay near the engine or an electrical panel with breakers and feel for any loose connections, wire loose in its crimp termination or broken wires for that matter that the pressure washer broke off completely. I personally don't like arcing across on the starter but if you have a remote starter button tool with the clamp on leads, that can test the starters function and eliminate that as the culprit.
Don't forget to check any grounding wire harness and the main positive and negative cables at both ends, battery/starter/frame
