Is there a standard duration on non-compete contracts in the state of Washington?
Would a signed non-compete contract hold up in court without a printed duration?

You likely should review your facts with one or more local attorneys.
An enforceable non-compete agreement in WA would have to be reasonable in its restrictions, including the time duration and place. What is reasonable depends on the type of business.
Your alleged agreement may be unenforceable because it did not have all the elements required in any type of contract. Perhaps the employer did not provide any consideration for the agreement.
The alleged agreement may also be unenforceable because the time duration or place or both may not be reasonable.
Only after reviewing your relevant facts would your attorney be able to offer informed opinions as to your particular situation.
