[FIXED] Sometimes not able to clean dishes

[ Edited ]
★★★ Novice

Hello,

 

Sometimes my character or the maid cannot clean the dishes. They just pick it up and put it back down again. The maid tries it several times before giving up and leaving. It's annoying to have to manually delete the dishes, and becaus the maid takes more time she wants more money. It has happened when the dishes were sitting on a dining table and on a kitchen counter.

 

Hope this gets fixed.

  • Fixed an issue where food that was left to spoil inside a microwave would prevent a Sim from being able to use or clean the microwave. In some cases this would also prevent the Sim from being able to clean up dishes anywhere on the lot.

Please give me feedback if this solves the whole issue

Deleting all the dirty dishes in buy mode helped for me.

 

I think the bug happened when my character was carrying dirty dishes while I was redesigning the kitchen. Probably doesn't recognize the new sink or something.

 

Hope that helps

It may be a problem with diagonally facing chairs. Try making sure all your chairs are straight and see if that helps.

Did you try moving them somewhere else ? Do you have good access to the trash can ?

Yes, i moved the dishes to different places and in different rooms. Almost every room has a trashcan that is easily accessible and there is an outdoor thrascan right outside the main door. Sometimes it works when i move the dishes and sometimes it doesn't. It doesn't seem like there are some places where they can get stuck, it looks quite random. However i did notice that it seem to occur more often when there is more then 1 dish in the room. They pick up the first dish, put it right next to the other one, and then keep on picking one up and placing them back down.
