Differential feeds are found on sergers and overlock machines while most regular sewing machines have an even feed. Are you sewing with thick fabric or multiple layers of fabric? If so, it is not uncommon to need a walking foot. However, you shouldn’t need to be pulling or pushing your fabric through your machine as it should be doing that for you. There is a speed setting on most machines for the feed dogs. Try adjusting that faster or slower and see if that gets rid of the pulling and pushing problem.
Hope that helps!
