Indirect object pronouns come before the verb, except in special cases when you can (not must) put them at the end of a verb. You can add them to the end of an infinitive, present participle (-ando -iend) or an imperative.

Me lavo tienes que lavarte.

estoy lavandóme OR me estoy lavando.

lavése OR se lave

^You were doing fine, up until until the last sentence. "se lave" doesn't work. - samdie, FEB 25, 2010

I think this is what you are looking for. You can also get there by mousing-over MORE in the blue bar across the top of the screen, selecting Reference, and then selecting Spanish Verbs. There is also a video in the learn section.

I hope this helps you.

Look at lesson 2.5 Reflexive Verbs and the Morning Routine in course Learn Spanish 2 in the Learn Spanish section. Very helpful. - h1deaway, FEB 25, 2010
