Updated for patch 1.77.131.1030 (cottage living)

Summary
You have loads of sims sitting for a meal and one gets up to put a single dish in the dishwasher. Then you have to wait for it to finish and another silly sim puts another single dish in it and wait again. No more of this silliness now you can put in as many single dishes as you want.

What this mod does
This is another simple mod that just changes the start dishes function on the dishwasher, so when a stupid sim puts in a single dish in the dishwasher it never starts, It just gobbles up the dish and is instantly ready for the next one. Or if like me you use autonomy mod to turn off clean dishes interactions then you can drag and drop as many dishes to the dishwasher as you like. Funnily enough your sims never run out of dishes.

Why i created this mod
Like many of the stupid things sims do, i got fed up with this one too. I've been using SCAM autonomy mod to turn off all clean dish interactions but got fed up having to either direct sims to do it or drag and drop them when i could be doing other stuff in game so i decided to make things easier. Now i can carry on playing and my silly sims can get up from the table to load all the dishes they like without leaving a ton of dirty dishes on the table waiting for the dishwasher to finish.

I have also created another version of this that disables children and teens from using dishwasher as i felt i was getting too many good mannered teens and kids in my game and they seem to be obsessed with cleaning dishes which is just not realistic enough for me.
I'm still tweaking this version to stop them putting them in bins or washing in sinks. It is working but they are still attempting to clean just picking up dishes and putting em down so i need to fix this and will upload as soon as i can get it working perfect if anyone wants it..


Conflicts: I haven't found any conflicts so far and as i always say if you have any mods that edit the same files they may conflict and the only mod i know of that would probably use the same files is LittleMssams eco dishwasher mod

Hi and thanks!! I seem to not be able to see this mod working though.
Scenario: Counter has a Dishwasher inside it. A sink is nearby. I instruct the sim to "clean up" their leftovers and the dirty/used dish is scraped off into the trash then placed into the dishwasher successfully! However, when immediately after that, I instruct the sim to "clean up" another dirty/used dish, the sim walks over to and uses the sink. The expected result is for the sim to open the dishwasher again and place the second dish into it. Any advice?

i haven't had this issue myself but i have wash dishes in sink autonomy turned off using scumbumbo's SCAM mod. try that out if you don't mind sink autonomy off

ill turn back on sink autonomy in my game and see if i can find a solution to that if you really don't want that autonomy off yourself

I'm glad you created this. I was using LittleMsSams EcoDishwasher Mod, but it keep glitching. So I will give this one a try and let you know my results.

i've no issues with this in my main game or my test game
and no code in its tuning has changed since updates

have you any other mods that might use the same tuning files? if so it would most likely conflict

i was using that too but had glitches also and is slightly different where in that one they put dishes in until its full then runs it. with my big family's was still waiting for it to finish once it was going is why i made this one so the dishwasher never actually starts thats' why no waiting. im too impatient lol
