    Never washed canvas, can you? If they are like any other canvas I would think you might just want to take a light scrub brush with some soap and a water hose.

              Best way to clean it is to take it down to the river and use a couple of rocks and beat it with them rocks{not too severly} until it is clean then hang it from a limb to dry.

                    An indian and a cowboy out huntin buffalo. As they are wandering around the indian suddenly drops down and puts his ear to the ground, he says "buffalo come" the cowboy says how do you know. The indian says 'ground sticky'

                    seriously though i would go with what the others said and hand wash not sure what the machine would do to that canvas, with as expensive as replacements would be from the dealer i woudlnt wanna chance it myself.

                        Any agitation will likely cause the inside seams to fray,, plus ifn like mine you got a leather patch sewn on. So if you risk the machine make sure its on the most gentle cycle just kinda swishes the water a little. SAFE MODE would be a hand wash even just let soak for awhile and then rinse with a hose. hang dry Too bad they dont have a care label,
                        Appears more like nylon to me not cotton (canvas) No dryer at all that would really fug up the leather logo patch.
