So here is what I found.  With the brake still out I was able to get the machine to spin  by wedging extra washers in the thrust bearing area.  I also noticed that the bearing did not seat all the way into the retainer for the brake spring.  I ordered both the thrust bearing kit and the Retainer from this site.  I am happy that the thrust bearing kit is only half the cost of the competitors.  I feel confident this will fix the machine.  Thanks for your help.  I am so glad I found this site.

So I bought the bearing thrust kit and can not install it.  As in my original post the drive shaft does not go low enough for me to install a thrust washer.  I can barely fit the cir clip on and it is so tight it will not dis engage the brake and allow the washer to turn counter clockwise.  What do I do next?  Either I need the drive shaft to drop another 1/8 inch or I need to concentrate on another part of the washing machine

Flip the tub and install the thrust kit outside the washer.
