Question about Kenmore 11101 Mechanical Sewing Machine
SOURCE: skipping stitches or won't sew
Re-timing is a possible solution but there is a couple of other possible causes. Bent needles are the first thing to check (but you said you changed needles). Another cause in this machine is wear. This machine has been around long enough for the guides for the needle shaft to have worn. You can check this by grasping the needle clamp screw and pushing it front to back. If there is more play than about half the thickness of you thread you're probably going to drop stitches. To verify this is the problem take a piece of string and loop it around the needle clamp screw and pull backwards on it while sewing. If your machine stops dropping stitches you've found your problem and need to take your machine for service.

There's a website called managemyhome.com which is sponsored by Sears. It's free to join. Go to the Home Manager column and choose Owner's Manuals from the drop down menu.
You can type in the brand name (Kenmore) and model number of your machine. Not all of them are in there but, I did find the one for the 1950280 question. It's a pdf file.
For the 38516764 question, please double check your model number. I received either no response or a Kenmore Elite dishwasher manual in response to my query.
