The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

I had that problem the first time I tried to wind a bobbin. What a mess. The next time I let the thread run through my finger and thumb before reaching the bobbin. I had to do the same on a previous Kenmore.
I've also found that the heavier Bernina bobbins don't 'jump' around.

If you take the top off you will see a tiny rubber tire that engages the winder to the handwheel. Over time they get really soft are really hard and disintgrate. If you have a local sewing shop take the old one in and get a new one to slip on it takes only a few minutes and cost usually less that $2.00

When you have the winder rubber on try and turn the winder by hand, if it does not move the chances are the winder has seized, if the winder wheel is moving but not the spindle then the grip (thread) has worn, if you cannot move the whole winder by hand and it has seized you need to get some WD40 and spray a few drops down the spindle, take an electric drill and put it over the top of the spindle and switch it on slowly and it will probably free it off, be aware of oil splashing out.
you mighjt get a digram from www.tandtrepair.com

SOURCE: bobbin winder will not wind
The bobbin winder will not activate to turn the bobbin or the thread will not wind onto the bobbin spool?
Sewing machines vary in the method used for bobbin winding.
You can find threading and bobbin winding guides at sewusa.com.
If the winder is broken, you can get it repaired or check into getting a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder as an auxiliary for winding the bobbins, which would be less expensive than the repair.
