Re: instructions for theading a Sears Kenmore Sewing...
All machines thread the same. TTN tension,take up, needle. Beginning
with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the
tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test
it to make sure the tension is working correctly. (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 passes this test,
continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread
guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and
turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left
side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are
some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your
bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.
To wind the bobbin, guide the thread around the thread guide on the left top of your machine, then to the bobbin winder. Wind the thread around the bobbin several times, place the bobbin on top of the bobbin winder, push it against the wheel and press the foot pedal. It should stop winding when the bobbin is full or you take your foot off the control

The bobbin winder doesn't spin and I can't wind the bobbin. ... What will release thebobbin winder that is stuck to the right on my Kenmore sewing machine model 385.17826690? Why won't my bobbin holder thread to the top on my Sears Kenmore sewing machine model 385.17928?
If, I were you, I would take to Sears, to the sewing machine department and have the salesman show me how to thread it and wind the bobbin. You can order a manual from Sears parts direct, if you don't have it.
Go to Sears and talk to their sewing machine dept, I am sure that the salesperson will explain it to you for free. You need to have instruction beyond a book. If, you cannot go to Sears, check with your neighbors, there has to be one that sews or your local high school, Home ec teacher. Good luck

I have a Kenmore as well ,I hope that this will work for you ,too bad that I don't live close to you otherwise I would give a hand. This is the way I fill the bobbin on mine.
Mine is located on the top right ,I put the thread into the bobbin hole leaving a small piece of thread hanging for me to hold when I begin the winding, I pull the wheele out to stop the needle from moving while winding, when I am done just push it back in .I run the thread from the spool into the top left it looks like a U turn with a screw go around that without winding just pull it into the bobbin hole. press the foot control and it will begin winding .
