Probably due for a service, the top tension discs can get dirty and gummed up or they may not be working at all.
Is the top thread actually into tension? Always raise the pressure foot when you thread up so the thread can get into tension, if the pressure foot is down, then the tension device closes up making threading correctly very hard.
I always suggest the following for any fault, take off all the threads, clean and oil according to manual, clean between the tension discs by turning to zero then flossing between them with a clean fabric edge of cotton waste. Oil if your machine manual says to. Wipe the whole thing over with a clean slightly damp cloth.
Then start fresh, wind a new bobbin, thread up, new needle and test sew. Then, if its still playing up, put it in the car and go for a visit to the tech.
