Re: the bottom stitches are all loose and they look like...
You need to do a tension test.

Tension assembly test. To do this test. Pull the thread
through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working
(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 doesn’t work this way then you probably have a piece
of thread or lint stuck inside the tension discs. To remove it, turn the
tension to 0 zero and raise the presser foot.Using a small screwdriver, open
the space between the discs and spray with canned or compressed air. The stuff
should come out. Do the tension test again to make sure you got everything and
then try sewing again. sewman7

first ,re thread the upper bobbin, check the needle to match the fabric and the lower bobbin thread should be the same like the upper thread. If it dose not work, clean the discs tension for the upper thread.
change the needle --make sure it's the right one for the fabric being sewed
rethread the machine top and bobbin
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
also check the top thread tension, if the stitches under the fabric are loose adjust the top thread tension one number or letter higher at a time and sew on a scrap piece of fabric till the stitches look normal
Mine is doing the same thing. It's pulling the thread up from the bobbin and making a huge knot. Any suggestions. I've done all the above checks. Brand new needle, tension is on embroidery, threaded properly and no lint in bobbin compartment.
If the thread bunches up on the bottom sometimes it is the bobbin tension. You can remove the bobbin housing and may notice a screw. This screw "tensions" the tab where the thread goes through, creating tension on the thread. Another thing to check if the machine is on a "loose/stretch" stitch setting, this will allow the elastic to freely expand and contract. You may need to also adjust the "speed" of the feed teeth, to compensate for the slack. Often there is "stray thread" in or around the bobbin, which can cause problems, One of these may be the solution, Im being general in my information.
* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.
* Change your bobbin There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you sew.
* When you start to sew a seam, grasp the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.
I am not sure about this particular machine but in most machines there will be a nob on the front loose low numbers like 0 1 -2 work well on number 3. If the nob is not on the front check and see if it is on the side.
