@Valnatron Merged your post with existing thread on the issue.

Check all shelves.

@Valnatron Try the following:

Backup your house to the gallery and backup your save.

Then try deleting room by room, testing after each room you have until it works. Start with the top floor.

Once you know which room, scan that again from top with walls up for any dishes.

Sometimes it's not really a shelf but something else unexpected. Everything that has slots to put something.

@crinrict Thanks, Crinrict. I found the offending dishes, but there are other glitches still happening (toddler Sims popping out of bed when I go into the Build / Buy modes as though I reset them, Sims refusing to sleep when it rains because they have to run inside, etc.). So, I'm going to backup the house and save and start deleting, like you suggested.

@Valnatron There's a thread for buy/build reset here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-A-Sims-resetting-after-using-build-mode/td-p/78736...

The run inside there's only one for toddlers: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/TO-ADD-S-Toddler-Queues-Run-Inside-from-Blizzard-When-Put-In/t...

Don't think that either is an issue of the house. The suggestion was only an easy way to find the dishes.

I thought I fixed the problem but the problem still occurs

even regular sims aren't doing dishes or taking out the trash, they just pick it up and then they put them back down, I either have to delete them manually or keep forcing them to try and clean them.

Edit: I took off Tranportalate and it seemed to work for a few days, but it's happening again even to normal sims.

@DaniGorl That usually happens if there's some dishes on shelves. They like to put them there but can't get them back down.

Can you scan your house for any objects with slots to see if there's any dishes on them ?
