The machine stops with 21 minuites remaining the pump is running a clicking noise seems to be coming from the soap dispencer have taken dispencer to bits cant see any stripped teeth any ideas?

See if there is wiggle or play in the tub basket. Open loading door put your hand at the top of basket close to the opening and check movement. There should be no play.If there is water in tub when it stops check the drain hose between tub and drain pump for foreign objects. Let me know.

Bosch dishwasher dispencer will not close

Sounds like the actual dispencer mechanisum is worn or faulty either the latch or the catch you can usualy buy the whole unit to replace this, all this does is keeps the tablet in during the initial pre wash then adds the tablet during the wash after 5 mins open the door and drop the tablet in it will still work the same and save cost

Soap Dispence problem on GHW9200LW

In applications with low water pressure, insufficient water
volume is introduced during the fabric softener dispensing
portion of the cycle to flush the dispenser.
The holes in the dispenser housing were enlarged to allow
a greater volume of water to flow through the fabric
softener dispenser to properly dispense the fabric softener.
Order and replace the dispenser housing, Part
#8181719, to correct the condition

Soap door latch

clean out the soap latch area with water and try using liquid detergent.
failing that, you need to replace the latch.

for the question from 'guest', the wash arms not spinning relates to either a build up of minerals or a pump that is not pushing enough. clean the unit with a mineral deposit remover, and then run a few loads with just water. clr might do the trick, but check the label for conflicts with the materials in your machine.
good luck
