Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 220.127.116.110
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansion, game and stuff packs except Journey to Batuu
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Place a shelf or cabinet over a kitchen sink. See if the sims washes the plate in the kitchen sink or goes to the closest bathroom sink.
What happens when the bug occurs? 99% of the time, if there is a shelf or cabinet over the kitchen sink the sim will clean up dishes and wash them in a bathroom sink. Even if the kitchen sink is closer to the table or kitchen counter where the sim was eating, the sim will walk all the way accross a room or go to an upstairs bathroom to wash the dishes instead.
What do you expect to see? Even if there is a shelf or cabinet over a kitchen sink I still expect the sim to use the kitchen sink to wash plates afer afer cleaning up.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. 11/10/20 update. Installed Snowy Escape on 11/13/20. Not sure which one caused the issue
The issue occurs on all lots and in all games
It occurs 100% of the time when the shelf is the Matcha Better Display Shelf
As long as there isn'tt a shelf/cabinet over the kitchen sink there is no issue. So I end up always having to remove them if the house comes decorated that way. Or I can't decorate the way I want. It's annoying.
I can confirm the bigger cabinets will 100% prevent sims from using a sink for washing dishes if said cabinet is above the sink.
I removed all sinks but one that has a big cabinet above it, sim will no longer have the option to clean up a dish but only throw away, even though a sink is RIGHT next to her!
Sim will even go multiple floors to another sink if the closest sink has a big cabinet above it.
For easy testing, the "1 Torendi Tower Penthouse" has this setup already. If you are in the kitchen in the ground floor, the sim will refuse to use that sink for washing a dish, even if I have a dishwasher right next to it and will go to the double bathroom behind the kitchen.
Same bigger cabinets will prevent the sim from using dishwashers too.
If I use the smaller cabinets, sims have no issues.
Took me a while to find out what was the cause, the bigger cabinets.

I have the same problem. It is ONLY with bigger cabinets, and they can brush teeth, wash hands, and get a drink of water, but cannot wash dishes.
