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.

all machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test,adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.
To wind the bobbin, guide the thread around the thread guide on
the left top of your machine, then to the bobbin winder. Wind the thread around the bobbin several times, place the bobbin on top of the bobbin winder, push it against the wheel and press the foot pedal. It should stop winding when the bobbin is full or you take your foot off the control

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.

Check the needle to see if the flat side is facing to the back of the machine. This is usually how the needle should be inserted.
Thread the machine with the presser foot up.
Hold onto the thread tail at the needle and hand walk the needle down and then back up to pull the bobbin thread up.
Take both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine before you begin to sew.
