Your plant looks to me like some type of aglaonema (chinese evergreen) or dieffenbachia. The whitened and curled new leaves could be caused by too little light; try moving it to a spot with more light, just not direct sun. Washing the soil off the roots is severely stressful, and is not something you should attempt (as I guess you've found out.) An easier fix for fungus gnats is to scrape the top 2" off the soil and replace with clean sand. (Sand for swimming pool filtration systems works well.) Fungus gnats are also a sign that the soil is too wet; another sign is the brown tips on the leaves. While it is true that overfertilizing can cause brown leaf tips, 99 times of of a hundred, brown tips are caused by overwater. Ags and dieffenbachia both hate to have wet feet. You need to test the soil moisture in the bottom of the pot, where the roots are, before watering. You can do this by pushing a probe - a small wooden dowel or shish-kebob skewer will do - to the bottom of the pot, then pull it up. It should have no soil sticking to it, and it should not feel moist. When the soil reaches this level of aeration, water thoroughly, meaning that water runs out the drainage holes. If you give it more light, and allow the soil to reach good aeration between watering, your plant should be ok. One more thing, don't fertilize till its completely recovered - maybe 6 months. Plants make their own food, you know; since you already put in new soil, its got all the minerals it needs.
