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.

SOURCE: need help making a bobbin...
Ahah! I was having a similar problem, but figured it out. What you do is you first put the spool of thread you want on the bobbin in its normal place, just as if you were sewing. Then you take the end of the thread and wrap it around the metal button-looking thing on the top of the metal string catcher on top of the machine. Wrap it around once in a figure eight sort of pattern (or kinda like a Jesus-fish symbol). Then you take the end and put it through one of the holes on the bobbin. Make sure there's enough so that it won't slide out, because it will wind at sewing speed. Now, you take the bobbin and put it on the metal post on the right-hand side of the machine, the one in front next to the white plastic round with a screw in the middle. It should fit on tightly.
Now, here's the part that took me forever: on most machines I've encountered, there's a switch somewhere that tells the machine to wind the bobbin. On the White Fashionaire 2380 that switch is the bobbin-holder itself (the metal post it is on right now!). Push the post, bobbin and all, towards the white plastic thing (sorry, but it's late and proper teminology eludes me). It should click over, and your thread should be going from the spool, around the metal button (in a figure eight fashion) and should be threaded through one of the holes in the bobbin. Now you hold the end of the thread and press the pedal, and after a short while the thread will be pulled out of your hand (or possibly not, if it's long enough). Keep going until you have enough thread on the bobbin, and cut it loose! You're done!

The timing mechanism is likely off. Take off the plastic bobbin case and see if the eye of the needle, on its way up, is just below the metal hook that catch the thread. If not,open the bottom cover with a flat screwdriver, loosen the two 2 mm hex screws, push out and disengage the gears. Adj the hook position by turning left or right so that it is right above the eye of the needle when the needle is on its way up. Tighten the hexes. I also give my machine a good old job with a high grade geese on the gears and light old drop on all moving parts before I close the cover.
