Put them in cold water on delicate like you said then let them air dry. I've found that it works well to suspend them by the hips for air drying as the pads will keep the legs open.

I had them up for a sale thread, but that's how I'd dry my Valken Redemption pants by using the belt loops just to get an idea.
You may call it fat, I call it bounce padding.

Does your washer have an agitator in the center or is it an h.e. washer? No agitator = definitely fine to machine wash, I also hang dry mine, exactly like the pic above. Cold water, delicate or active wear cycle should be fine. That's how I wash my '12 ltd pants

Wash it on cold, delicate/gentle setting, hang to dry.

It doesn't matter if the washer has an agitator, you'll be fine. I've washed mine 15-20 times in this manner, and they're still going strong. (2012 Contact TW)
