Definition of Wash load:
That part of the suspended load which is composed of particle sizes smaller than those found in appreciable quantities in the bed material. It is in near-permanent suspension and, therefore, is transported through the stream without deposition. The discharge of the wash load through a reach depends only on the rate with which these particles become available in the catchment area and not on the transport capacity of the flow.[1].
This is the common definition for Wash load, other definitions can be discussed in the article
