Fabric softener dispenser fills up with clear water after
Purchase some fabric softener and place it in its normal location at the beginning of the cycle. At the end of the cycle check to see if fabric softener has been dispensed and whether there is water in the cup.
If the fabric softener is gone, but there is water in the fabric softener cup, then your problem may be with the water valve assembly. The water valve assembly (as one complete unit) has a separate solenoid for hot and cold water temperatures, bleach and fabric softener. The fabric softener solenoid on the water valve assembly could be defective (allowing water to fill the fabric softener cup).

Will not spin goes thru cycle empties water never spins
Ouch! - had the same exact problem. I took my machine apart and checked for clogs, checked the bushing, checked for bent or obstructed hoses, checked for loose or damaged belts, loose or broken electrical connections etc and nothing "simple" seemed to be the issue. The whole machine looked pretty much brand new as far as wear and tear.
Then I tried all the trouble shooting and eventually got an error code that I thought would lead to an easy explanation- but I received little to no help directly from Bosch. They want you to call in a serviceman - even though you have a specific error code and only desire to know what it means.
My machine was past the warranty and I had the extended 5 year warranty(imagine that, just past warranty and then something breaks!) - I spent hours looking online for help - not much was available for this problem for this model -I determined I either needed a new motor or a new computer board or a serviceman to come in and then tell me I needed one or the other or possibly both. Any scenario was going to be very expensive($200 - $500 range just for parts) Since Bosch is not making that model anymore and the service and parts was going to add up to a pretty substantial bill I opted to buy a new washer - with warranty!
Sorry to be the barer of bad news - maybe you can take the shot at bringing in a serviceman and find it's only a minor problem - I did talk to a few "handymen" that I know and NONE had good things to say about the BOSCH washers. They do make good hand tools however!
