Kenmore front load washer - manual says you can't wash waterproof items

Kenmore Elite Front Loading Automatic Washer - model 796.4102. Purchased January 2012

Hi - We bought the above front load model washer a couple of months ago and the manual says not to wash waterproof items. This doesn't make any sense to me. One of our reasons for buying this model was the energy efficiency and how it would save us money, and that was also highly promoted by the sales rep at the store. We have a lot of waterproof jackets and other items that we wear often, and we have always washed them in our own washing machine. If we have to take them to a laundromat every time we need to wash them, that would be really inconvenient and expensive. The care labels on the items say that they can be machine washed.

Could you please elaborate on this limitation of the washing machine?

Thanks for your help,
Kathleen Barringer
