I have an old Kenmore and here are the directions from my manual: 1. Draw thread from spool through bobbin winder tension discs. 2. Wind thread around an empty bobbin several times. 3. Place bobbin onto bobbin winder shaft with thread coming from rear of bobbin. Push bobbin winder latch against bobbin until it clicks. 4. Release clutch by turning clutch knob toward you. Start machine.

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

Not sure if I am too late, but it's pretty basic. I have the same machine...
You have the thread on the spool with the thread on the left side (unrolling off the spool counterclockwise) and put it around the round thing on the front middle (looks like a snap sort of) and through the eye almost right in front of it (the loop) and hold the thread lightly then wrap the thread around the tensioner (the thing with the dial) to the left (counterclockwise) until the springs "pops" it into place. Then run the thread through the little hook thing (by entering from the left) then up to the eye (hole) that is in the little arms that raises and lowers (you might need to spin the wheel to get the arm in the right position) then you run the thread back through the hook thing (entering from the left) around the little half circle thing (by entering from the left) and finally in the hole in the needle...
hope it made sense, I tried to use laymen terms...

You put the hook (the half moon thing with a sharp point on it) in the machine by placing it opposite the little curved bar. Make sure it is seated properly on the ridge. The you take the race, the circular part with a small plate on the top and place that over the hook(the plate side will be facing up). It will only fit a certain way, it could have a slot that a notch fits into (that is usually how it goes). Then slide the arms over it and they will snap into place. Once done, turn the handwheel and make sure everything moves smoothly. If not, you'll need to start over as something isn't seated correctly. Then you can install the bobbin case as usual.
