This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

What is AddWash?
Have you ever found yourself walking away from your washing machine about to begin the cycle just to find a sock fallen from the laundry basket? With the new H&B AddWash, you can pause the cycle, open the AddWash door, insert the forgotten garment and resume the cycle from the pause. Sounds crazy, doesn't it? We've equipped our appliances with the latest technology available,
which includes an auto lint trap cleaner, a heat pump and a water condense auto-empting for the dryer and a custom additive space in the detergent tray for the washer. Both machines feature our signature speed cycle, which ensures the best results within minutes.

Common stuff between the two appliances
Both appliances sport a full size 2048x2048 set of textures which includes:
  • Body Diffuse
  • Body Normal
  • Body Specular
  • Body Emission (Drum On)
  • Body Emission (Drum Off)
  • Lid Diffuse
  • Lid Normal
  • Lid Specular

The reason why the textures are so big is to achieve a decent level of detail and keep my favorite parts of the appliances in HD, which are the drum detail and the control panel.




Polygon Counts:
Washing machine:
LOD 0 (highest): 2668
LOD 1 (medium): 2668

Tumble dryer:
LOD 0 (highest): 2373
LOD 1 (medium): 2373

Shadows are generated by the game, not by a shadow mesh.

You can obviously see I have a Washer and a Hamper basket, the basket does have clothes in it and your other washer and the EA one work fine, so I'm unsure what is causing it... Did something change with the 1.50 patch?

I have this issue too here and there, but I solved it by replacing the washer and hamper. Also don't put them too close to the wall. Especially the hamper.

Could I download these as a decoration? I don't have laundry day stuff but I still wanna put a washer and dryer in my house to look authentic. Do you think the game would let me use them?

These have the Laundry Day symbol, so I don't think so. Sorry.

I too have them in my game with the latest IL patch and no issues so far. Don't put them too close to the wall. Especially the hamper. Also make sure nothing is hanging above the washer/dryer who may block them.

I also have this problem. I replaced the washer and dryer and moved the hamper and am still getting this same problem. I previously had some default game washers and they were just fine. I bought my favorite set and they don't work
I'm going to try a few more things to see if I can get them to work.

***EDIT - I found the issue, there were some decorations on the wall I wasn't paying attention to and the walls were down. As soon I removed them everything is fine.

These are *gorgeous* to look at and perfectly functional, but be aware. You cannot have ANYTHING directly above the washer on the wall (other then windows) or to the left of the washer (if you are facing the front, THAT left). Otherwise it will not work for... some reason. I see several other people have had the exact same issue, so I know it's not just me or my mods. BUT, keep it clear and it works just fine. It's an absolutely beautiful addition to the game, better then -anything- that is in the game anyways. As all littledica's things are. Even the animations are wonderful, although I cannot see the timer on the washer but whatever. It's just so nice to have something nice to use in the game other then the same old, boring stuff over and over again.

I've had that problem with the washers and dryers. IIRC, I asked on Discord (LittleMsSam's, maybe?) long ago, and it's apparently because they use older Laundry Day coding.

I've had this same problem with the front loading washer. Only started having issues with it since the new patch. It's a major bummer because i love the mesh.

Edit: Yeah I read more posts apparently you can't have objects over the washer. Sure enough, I took down the item above it and it works now. strange. But It's fixed for me.

Well, cabinets should actually work but if you add clutter on them it could be the clutter.

I have EA‘s LD shelfs above washer and dryer and they work fine. The ones that came with Laundry Day.

I read that they still use the old LD coding which can also cause issues in some cases, but as long as you do what I wrote in above posts they should work fine.
