Question about Kenmore Sewing Machines
The machine seemed to work fine before, but now the needle hits the plate when sewing. I'm assuming something is causing the needle to bend which then causes it to hit the plate.
Try another needle and see if the needle still bends,, if the needle
still does bends then there could be something wrong with the needle
bar and the machine needs to be checked.

I would say we need more info about the problem, like make, model, etc, etc., but, the truth is regardless of what brand it is, if the needle hits anything during it's journey down into the bobbin case area, then it's simply out of time. This is usually the result of someone trying to clean or repair the machine when they don't know what they're doing. Somehow the belt has slipped. If it's a geared drive belt then you must release tension, move it a tooth one way or the other and put it back together and try it, easily, to see if it's better. IF not then try it another tooth and so on until you get it back to where it should be. That's usually not more than a couple of teeth one way or the other. If it's just a smooth belt, then just release the tension and move the mechanism by hand in the same manner as you did with the toothed unit.

1- how old your machine ? please check needle par play left and right or no? maybe lower needle bar bushing need to change.
2- maybe ur presser foot played need to change it but check firist.
3- sometimes when needle is broken there is small metal goes insaide the hook and make it dosn't move up or down, if you can adjust timing for hook please remove the hook and check your machine by hand move or not?
4- maybe some thread goes insaide the finger ( stopper for hook ) check this earia .

That's ok, needles get bent all the time and sometimes broken too. Just give it a new needle (look on the shaft at the top of the needle, you should see a screw to loosen for removing the needle). Note that the needle is made with a flat side on the shank to locate it properly, watch how the bent one is positioned when you remove it.
