Husqvarna push mower starts but will not run

My wife never changed the air filter and complained that the mower shuts off after starting. The air filter was disintegrating so I cleaned the carburetor,checked the needle valve, put in a new air filter and replaced the spark plug,and new gasoline, same results. There is no inline filter or gas shutoff valve. It's a Husqvarna with a Kohler engine, 6021P. Courage XT-6 (what ever that means). I'm leaning toward carburetor problems but hoping someone out there has run across this before. I'm even having a problem finding a parts list and prices. Thanks for your attention. Joe A

Is the choke opening up after it starts?

What do you mean by "cleaned the carburetor" ?
Unless you removed the whole thing completly disassembled it, installed a rebuild kit it's not "clean".
How old is it?
Been running nonethenal fuel in it or at least an additive to counter act the effects of it?

I agree with cheese on the choke. Make sure it is working right. Take the air filter off so you can see it.

Also they have a filter inside the fuel line when you take the line off the tank. Put a in line filter on it.
