[NEEDS INPUT] [LDSP] [PS4] No way to empty hamper of clean clothes

[ Edited ]
Champion

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
What is your current game version number? 1.20.101.3400
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything Currently available
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have clean clothes placed in the hamper
What happens when the bug occurs? There is no way to empty the hamper because the clothes are clean
What do you expect to see? The sims being able to at least take the clothes out of the hamper if clean ones get put in it.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

One day my maid dropped the clean clothes out of the dryer on the ground, then picked them up and put them in the hamper. There was no way to empty the hamper and nothing else could be put in the hamper because the clothes in it were clean and the hamper was full. I ended up having to sell the hamper because the clothing piling up everywhere was getting out of hand.

I've seen this issue on PC as well; it doesn't happen often, but when a clothes pile of "Clean" or "Pristine" is placed back into the hamper, this issue ends up being the result. You'll still be able to "Search Pockets" once on the clothes, but you get no option to wash them.

 

The only workaround I've found has been to have a Sim change their clothes so that a unit of "Used," "Filthy," or "Dirty" clothes spawns in the hamper, which then allows you to put the clothes into the wash.

 

This issue also is apparent if a pile of clothes on the floor shows up as "Clean" or "Pristine" as well, since they have no option to put them into the Washing Machine, or in the Wash Tub.

@PoptartJuniper Hm, wonder if this bug is back or if it's just a new instance: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/FIXED-LDSP-Clean-dry-clothes-in-laundry-hamper/m-p/6592371

@crinrict  it sounds pretty similar. I'd probably have checked a Me Too on that other report.

@PoptartJuniper Since @burin077 says it's also still happening on PC, it seems it's not a console only issue as I had hoped.

I don't have this problem, but then again, I use LittleMsSam's Small Laundry Overhaul to prevent this.

 

Good to know there's a workaround for people who don't use mods, though. Thanks, @burin077 !
