Re: [OPEN] [LDSP] Clean dry clothes in laundry hamper

★★ Apprentice

not sure if it is related or not..but after some time every washing machine I have stops working

 

when  I click on the washing machine the only option the game is giving me is the "improve/update" option, but it is greyed out. Saying "cannot be updated as long as there is laundry in the washing machine" (there isn't)

when I click on the baskets they are teling me that I don't have a washing machine

(no mods, no CC  in my game)

I have this issue as well, but it only happens when the maid does laundry. She'll either put the clean laundry back into the hamper (which my Sims cannot access or put away, the menu is always grayed out) or set the laundry down on a nearby table instead of putting it away. I don't remember how I solved the issue, I think I just ignored it and the clean clothes just ended up being "used" by my sims. Or the maid came again and put the laundry away. It doesn't happen very often, just every so often when the maid touches my laundry.

Same thing is happening in my game. More often than not, clothes in the hamper will be "clean" and can't be added to the washer... even happened one day, the clothes in the hamper where literally sparkling from being pristine and the clothes piles where sparkling, as well. Wish I had thought to get a SS.

This happens modded or not modded. New save or old save.

had this issue too, to the point where so many clean clothes were added to the hamper that the hamper became completely full and sims were dropping clothes on the floor (some of the piles were clean too)

 

anyway, I discovered that after about a sim week (maybe longer, I'm not sure) of leaving things as they are, clothes eventually degraded to dirty both in the hamper, on the floor and in my sim's inventory (put them in there because they were literally everywhere).

Adding clean clothes to a pile of dirty clothes will no longer prevent the Sims from washing the clothing. And adding dirty clothes to a pile of clean clothes will no longer prevent the Sims from washing the clothing.

New Patch, new luck.


Hopefully it's the correct patch note this time

 

Fixed in Patch 1.42.30

HI @hotbread01

 

this thread was about clean dry laundry inside the hamper. There's a few other issues with the washing machine but this is actually supposed to be fixed.

 

Here's another issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-LDSP-Laundry-Disapears-Washing-Machine-Broken/td-p...

hmm well it seemed it was the clothes or hamper not the machine like that thread you suggested i just could not put it away and the only way to fix it was to put the clothes back into the hamper then delete and rebuy the hamper
