I just had two outlets go. They were working fine and when I plugged the pressure washer in, both stopped working. My Klein voltage tester indicates red (hot). No breakers are flipped. Is this an outlet problem? Again, both were working fine and now read got but nothing plugged in is working.
A connection burned out
Outlets are typically wired in a chain. One of the wires was making poor contact, and the high but allowable load burned out this poor connection.
It will be on either the last good outlet in the chain, or the first bad one. It will be on the white wire.
If the connections involve the wire jabbed into a tiny hole in the back of the socket (not directly under a screw), that is a backstab. They are notoriously unreliable for this sort of thing. Most of convert to either screw terminals or screw-to-clamp type connections anytime we see a backstab.
We know it's not a GFCI because you get a hot indication.
Most likely they're on a GFCI circuit. Look on either outlet, or yet another nearby, for a reset button.
Large motors have an inductive "kick" that can trigger a GFCI even when there is no issue.
