Question about Dewalt DW056 18 Volt Cordless Impact Driver - 1/4" Drive Hex Shank (Battery Charger and Case Not Included) - Tool Only
Every time I have a drill bit or screw driver bit, after a two or three uses, the drill bit, or screw bit comes loose. Every time I tighten it it loosens again.
On this particular tool, you can't really tighten the bit in the anvil like a bit in a drill chuck. The bit is free floating but held in place by a small steel ball. The steel ball is held in place by the sleeve that slides up and down to release the ball so the bits can be changed. The sleeve is held down by a spring. Bits falling out can be caused by: Using bits without the groove in the bottom of them for the ball to catch in, dirt in the bottom of the anvil so the bit can't seat properly, the ball is missing or stuck, the spring is broke or binding, or the sleeve is bent or too dirty to slide up and down freely. Use compressed air to clean the anvil well and WD40 to clean and lube it further. If bits still fall out you'll have to take it apart and see if the ball, spring or sleeve need to be replaced.

SOURCE: How do I change the
The chuck will not turn. So to loosen just turn the black plastic counter clockwise. The chuck will loosen. Or you can hold the black part on the chuck tight and put the drill in reverse and slowly squeeze the trigger and the chuck will loosen also. Do the opposite to put a new bit in. Put the drill in forward and hold the black part of the chuck and squeeze the trigger with the bit in place and it will tighten down on the bit.

SOURCE: chuck will not release bit
the Chuck should be 2 Part.
Use 2 pair of stillsons Or pipe wrenches, Tight On the 2 Chuck Parts, Crack in opposite Directions.
Alternative, Use Wrench On Chuck Jaw, Short sharp Blow With Hammer.

there is a gear and a clutch as agier said in the head. if its old it looses its catch, youll need to take it apart and look at it. the torque setting just tightens on the head the more you tighten it the less it will give( the ratcheting you hear when you set it low) .expensive drill so its worth trying to fix. how old is it? as for drilling thru knots and hard wood make sure your bits are sharp, you can spend alot of time trying to drill with a dull bit. do you sharpen your bits? i do alot of drilling with battery drill thruout the year and believe me a sharp bit is waaaay easier. though ive never had to sharpen concrete bit because they always break when they get old and i buy new.
so your saying it stops completley when you hit something hard, right. does it ratchet?

If you find that the end of the screw inside the chuck is actually broke then you have a gear problem inside your drill. This is actually a very common problem. Sometimes people push too hard on their drills and the gears inside wear out and break. This prevent the motor from wearing out, but, the gears have to be replaced.
If it is the gears and not the chuck. you broke the minimium of the front gear or gears inside your drill. YOU CANNNOT repair gears. they need to be replaced. you may be able to find some off brand gears to work but, you run the risk that they are not as strong as your original ones, or may not be exactly grooved correctly.
so, if replacing your chuck does not work. find replacement gears. IF you cannot find the gears from the manufacturer see about replacing your drill.
If the chuck is still good, keep it. If you buy the same model, keep your old drill for replacement parts, ie, switch, armature, cord, etc.
hope this helps somewhat.

Turn your drill speed selector to "1" and put drill direction in reverse. Hold the outer end of the chuck and push the trigger. Should come loose.
