In fact, I've done it many times, with various ages of keyboard.

Most of what I've done were membrane keyboards, so I completely
disassembled them, peeled them apart, and ran them through. The
covered utinsel rack is perfect for holding all the keys in, too...
I did once completely dishwash my Apple II Plus (sans PSU),
motherboard, keyboard, and case. Just use Jet-Dri or some other form
of quick drying agent, to prevent deposits of minerals and other
conductive things on your boards... And make sure it dries apart for
at least 48 hours, more without direct air blowing on it.
PS: It's implied that the II Plus worked when I was done washing it. ;)
