You don't have to go into detail, I would just like to know that I'm not entirely mistaken. But if you don't feel like answering, no problem! I perfectly understand it!

Yes, it seems generally right to me. Use *-choH* when you want to 
describe an action changing one state into another, not just if you 
describe an action that might involve a change of state at some point 
that you're not talking about. When you say *jIbwIj vISay'nISmoH,* the 
washing you're talking about logically implies a change of state from 
unclean to clean, but the action you're trying to depict isn't the 
change of state; it's the act of washing.
