I've washed mine on a gentle handwash cycle and hung out to dry. Should be alright if the material is in good shape.

From Sunbrella's website...

When it’s time for a thorough cleaning, Sunbrella fabrics can be cleaned while still on a boat or, size permitting, they can be removed for cleaning in a washing machine or dockside. When cleaning Sunbrella fabrics, it is important to observe the following:

1. Always use a mild soap such as Ivory Snow, Dreft or Woolite.
2. Water should be cold to lukewarm (Never more than 100°F/38°C.)
3. Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue.
4. Air dry only. Never apply heat to Sunbrella fabrics.

Treat with 303 Fabric Guard after cleaning to restore water/dirt repellency.
