Need some help...was cleaning, now cylinder won't close

So I was cleaning my Smith & Wesson M&P 360 for the first time. I removed the front screw on the right side of the frame, removed the cylinder, and did a thorough cleaning. Then, when I went to replace the cylinder, I found that it won't close. It appears that the front of the ejector rod will not fully seat against the spring-loaded detent (not sure of the exact names, sorry). The detent moves freely so I can't understand what would be keeping the ejector rod from being able to depress it enough to close. Any ideas?

Take the front screw out and make sure the cylinder is fully seated on the crane, and that the crane is fully seated in the frame.

Close the cylinder and then install the front screw.

Also, if your hammer is cocked it will cause issues.

Alright, it looks to be working now. Not sure what the problem was. There was no debris anywhere. Anyway...

Is there supposed to be a little bit of play in the cylinder (when opened), front to back? It isn't locked up super solid on the crane but I think it's supposed to be this way, as my S&W 642 is the same way (maybe with slightly less play, but some play nonetheless).

yes.
If you look on the left side of the frame, at the bottom rear of the space the cyliner occupies, there is a (thing) that keeps the cylinder from moving rearward when open.

Call it a flange, or something.

take the cylinder star out and hold it with your fingers and try to screw the ejector rod in, I think is reverse thread

Too much oil under the extractor (won't seat)... get it all out !

(Had this myself- An old cop advised me as to the cause)
