I found one reference on the Kong site that said it was okay, but I still haven't tried it.

I do it all the time. As stated above, I never use the drying cycle, though. They always come out nice and clean and I don't see any surface cracks or anything indicating that it is breaking down the Kong.

b/c of the material they are made out of, the dishwasher could eventually wear it down faster than usual, but it still wouldn't be fast enough to bother washing them by hand.

Yes, I have done it lots with out any problems, top rack and I don't use the heated drying cycle.

I did a quick search and several people said they used the dishwasher, top rack, and they were perfectly safe. One suggested just putting it in the rinse cycle so you don't have the chemicals from the dishwashing soap and not using the heated drying. Another suggested rinsing after to make sure you get any soap residue off.
