The bracket is probably bent downward, bend it up so the plunger does not come out. What part# did you use?

When it goes into drain, the solenoid arm does go dowm into the solenoid right?, and after drain it goes back up?

Yes, it goes down - but after drain it goes back up and flies out of the solenoid and lands on the floor

Any way you can take a pic, and attach it, you must have assembled it wrong, and without seeing it, I'm not to sure I can tell you what is wrong

Did you take out the shaft that goes into the plastic housing of the motor assembly?

I think that is your problem, If you don't get that shaft back in through the flapper assy inside the pump assy, than this will happen. If you want to try to get it back in properly, you will need to remove the motor/pump assy and do it this way. If you can't get it in, and I never have been able to, you will need to install a new motor/pum assy.
