The stiches on my machine change size. What am I doing wrong.

When you say they change size, what are you referring to? If you change the type of fabric on the sewing advisor the stitches will change in relationship to the type of fabric selected which can cause them to change size. The other issue may be in feeding the fabric to the machine. If the fabric gets caught on something and is not feeding freely, it can cause the stitches to elongate.

My wimsew sewing machine is not feeding the material properley changing from large to small stiches

sounds like the feed dogs need to be checked if the machine is not feeding the fabric thru
also sounds like the sewing machine needs some type of adjustment since it's going from large to small stitches.

Cloth does not move . It sews when I pull the cloth myself, but it does not automatically moves the cloth by itself

Make sure your feed dogs are up. Feed dogs are moving metal parts in the needle plate that make the fabric move forward under the presser foot. Open up the shuttle box underneath the needle plate. There is a lever to the right of the the shuttle. Press the lever down and to the left to raise the feed dogs.

Thread loops

Proper set of bobbins and tension set up vs. fabrics will sew you satified.Also incude regular maintenance cleaning of the feeds dogs with a brus,also the shuttle assembly need sometime to clean.Some threads and fabrics chips accumulates in the feed dogs and shuttles assembly.In setting up thread bobbins the thread should be clockwise direction as you pull out on slot coming out to the bobbins (as you shown in my inserted image manual).The loop thread should be propely in the sequence position same like in the image refer to it.If you use cotton/ polyester fabric in the begining of trial set tension dial to No.3 and stich to No. 8 to 12 any convenient to you Use needle No. 14 .Posible make a record if you are sewing different types of fabric mostly silk fabric is hard to sew adjusting to lower stich can posible sew satisfactory.

Stitches don't feed properly

Remove the foot and the needle plate. Check the area where the stitches are formed to see if there are any rough edges on the plate or stitch finger. Sometimes you will find a crack in the plate that is hidden under the foot. While the foot is up, the gap closes but when it is lowered and fabric is trying to feed the crack opens and the rough edge won't allow it to advance.
