I think the general rule of thumb is no more than three washers before changing bolt size. I also don't know why someone told you not to have all three on the nut side, I can't think of any reason why it would be a problem. The only thing I can think of trying is to try playing with different combinations of thick and thin and finally to try a different AN4-5 if you got it, the threads and hole may be in different positions allowing for the cotter pin to go in. I also find cotter pins fight me more on Mondays so maybe wait a day.
