Can I put this in the dishwasher?

so... um... yeah...

I have a Vlocity that I loaned to a friend a couple months ago. Long story short: he managed to take a ball through the speed-feed and into the hopper, breaking several balls and making an enormous mess; and I haven't had the time or patience to clean it.

(Yes, you know it's coming)

If I took the electronics out, could I put the Vlocity shell into the top rack of the dishwasher without worrying about anything getting melted?

I'm going to need an extra hopper next weekend and I'm not thrilled about the extensive cleaning I'll have to do if it won't wash off...

(and yes, I realize this is probably a stupid idea.)

Not sure, never heard of anybody doing it. I'd play it safe and soak it in soapy hot water and spray it down with a hose.

it will be fine in the dishwasher, just make sure you turn off or stop the cycle before it drys it. heat will equal melted hopper.

if anything, use a bath tub or sink, with dish soap ad hot soapy water. a old tooth brush will help clean shell and gunk out of the crevices.

I've seen some dye lock lids survived a dish washer and some that went cloudy, I'd say not, just wash it in the sink.

We will sometimes put our dirty pods in the dishwasher. No problems so far
