@Demiliaxox Are you still having issues with this ? It does seem to be an issue in buildings with ladders only

@amieloos There's a couple issues with this still.

- Do you have half walls in your home that have dishes on it ?
- Do you only have ladders in your home or also stairs ?

Re: Sims won’t wash up

★★ Guide

This happens randomly for me, and I don't have the eco expansion. It's a really old bug (that was fixed) that seems to have resurfaced with the last updates. My sims will, at best, walk around and collect dirty dishes, only to put them down somewhere. Then if I repeatedly tell them to do the dishes, either by clicking on the dishwasher or the dirty dishes, they'll pick them up, usually move them to a different surface, and then put them down again. Sometimes I can manually drag a stack of dirty to the sink or trash can, but I have had issues where they cannot be picked up in live mode.

 

I have however found, if you leave the dirty dishes for a while (like maybe half an hour real time), suddenly they can wash them without any problems.

 

It is definitely not a persistent problem for me, but they seem to get more and more reluctant to clean up the more dishes you have lying around (which is just great after a dinner party).

@TheSteelRodent for me the shelves are fine now but the half-walls are still bugged. Do you have any ?

@amieloos 

 

Can you drag the dirty plates into the trash bin or sink? This will immediately clear the dirty plates and your sims does not need to wash them.

 

I have been doing this for quite awhile on pc. Hope this works on console too.

Hi, no I can’t drag them to the sink or to the trash, I can’t get rid of them on build mode either

The dishes are all in one place in a table but they won’t move them from there now. I have all walks connected and I do have a couple of ladders on my lot.

 

why would ladders effect the dirty dishes ?

@amieloos Cause you can't carry them up/down the ladder leading to issues.

 

Would you mind sending me your save ? Instructions in my signature

@crinrict It’s all on the ground floor, I’ve got bins inside and outside. How do I do that with a PS4 save?

Thank you Standard smile
