The washer has a prominent label that warns against it. In the manual it clarifies:
Do not wash, spin, or dry water-proof seats, mats, or clothing*.
- Do not wash thick, hard mats even if the washer mark is on the care label.
This may result in injury or damage to the washer, walls, floor, or clothing due to
* Items not to wash: Woolen bedding, rain covers, fishing vests, ski pants, sleeping bags,
diaper covers, sweat suits, and bicycle, motor cycle, car covers, etc.
Elsewhere in the manual it also recommends against washing shoes for similar reasons. And it warns that sand may accumulate from washing throw rugs or doormats, which could affect draining.
