Is klær irregular and makes klærne when I want to say the clothes? Or is this some other rule to this? And is his/her clothes correct translation of klærne? If so, why is that?

Somewhat irregular yes. 'klærne' = 'the clothes'

'his/her clothes' isn't a correct translation of 'klærne', but could be a possible translation given the right context. 'his/her clothes' would most likely translate to 'klærne hans/hennes'.

Why is "do the laundry" not accepted? As far as I'm concerned it conveys the same message as in "wash the clothes".

Although, "We do the laundry," conveys a similar idea, laundry can include more than just the clothes, e.g., bedding and towels. It's a good practice to stick to the closest translation possible. :0)
