    Yes, I have been having the same problem. In the drill position the clutch still slips. It has been getting worse. It started happening in 3rd gear and now it happens in 1st. now It wont drill at all without the clutch slipping!

Motor works and spins but as soon as the drill touches the wall drill stops but motor keeps going.

Check the speed switch on top - sometimes it doesn't fully seat in the 1 or 2 position. Switch it to the opposite setting, run it, then switch back, until it seats properly. Also check the clutch control ring for the same issue.

Need to remove the chuck to access the adj. clutch

first remove the chuck ret screw it is LH threads, shift the tool to the low position and the clutch to drill only. Find a bent handle allen wrench about the chuck capacity and lock the smaller end into the jaws, next put the chuck on a workbench or block of wood with the long portion at about a 30 degree handle so you can hit it counter clockwise and strike it with a hammer, it might take a few hits but it will come loose.

My Craftsman 19.2 drill's adjustable torque clutch want allow drilling in forward gear.

Try with the drill chuck torque setting set to max. If no joy on that one, work tha low/high speed switch several times. If no luck there, you may need to open the drill and check for a loose linkage, or that something has slipped out of place. It's not difficult.

My Makita handrill is not working. It's just like loose,and the drill is not rotating anymore.

Your bearings in the Clutch have fallen out of place. 
Basically the tension screws pulling the clutch against the body.
Have became loose. If you Tighten them most likely wont fix it.
You should contact Makita. If you do open the drill. The Clutch assembly will be a task to reassemble. And the warranty might be voided.

Get a torx bit, either 10 0r 15 & slowly undo screws about one third. There should be 4 of them. When screws are loose they will take pressure off selector & you should be able to free it up.
