@bae281995 Do you mean he gets a moodlet to saying the clothing is dirty or are the visibly dirty like when the hygiene is low ?

@bae281995 Did your sims get dressed after putting clean laundry away?

Yes. If I remember it correctly, she took a shower after putting the laundry away. And then her clothes are dirty, despite having them washed and dried. 

 

Yes, it gets also marked as used when dried. The weird thing is that when they change into other clothes, it can be anything from dirty to clean or dry.

@bae281995Have seen something similar when clothes in dryer aren't put away first before a sim changes clothes; so was curious.

It's as though sims change into clothes straight out of dryer, and the rest of the clothes there aren't "clean" anymore. (And, then, they've got a hamper with more "used/dirty" clothes to wash.)

Also noticed it with clothes in washer giving sims the "damp clothes" moodlet because they changed clothes while laundry was "in progress." Even though they've previously put away clean and dry laundry.

One other thing, in my game, the washtub only seems to be good for ~5 washes before it goes buggy and confused about the state of the laundry afterwards. So, I just replace it at that point (since it isn't that expensive) and everything seems to work fine again - well, for another 4 or 5 washes anyway.

 

Still love making my Sims do laundry, but have to admit the washtub/clothesline. W/D and hampers are finicky.

I'll try replacing the washtub. If it's a bug, hope they fix it.
