Laundry still not working?
The laundry rooms works fine just for a few days in my prisions.

My last problem is: the basket with dirty clothes is "blocked" for the workers. They can't get then to take to the laundry.

This is a alpha bug? Or there is a way to make this work?

so there's nothing really wrong with your design, and you're getting bit by bug more than anything. there is a way to make things work again, but the measures i employed to do so should only be necessary until the next update comes out.

there are two links at the bottom of this post showing the changes.

(1) first, with the basket in the shower, and the basket currently in the hallway, i used the foundation tool to bulldoze the square directly underneath them. this queues a job to dump the basket and clothes within it. once this is done, use the foundation tool and put the square back.

(2) next, use the materials tool and bulldoze the horizontal walls in between the cells in center.
there are two doors i placed which may not be necessary but allow prisoners access to the backside of those outside walls in case a uniform gets tossed on the wall. one at the top of your common room, and another in the fence to the bottom left of your yard.

finally, i massaged your regime just a little to add more work hours, and (3) shifted your laundry workers around in deployment so the 'working' laundry only has two guys, and the 'workforce' laundry full.

step 1 is to take care of what appear to be straight up bugged laundry/carts, 2 is to minimize possibility of uniforms getting thrown in unrecoverable locations, and 3 to minimize or eliminate problems with guys getting stuck on eachother in the middle of the room when trying to work.

there are two jobs which will remain in the queue which once the bugged carts/uniforms are removed will be relabeled as move x to y, but they'll move to the bottom of the list and don't appear to cause more problems.

all these issues though will hopefully be addressed in the next update.

All three suggestions works fine. Thanks a lot.
