did you tighten the spindle enough ? sounds like the sleeve is too loose on the spindle, there should be some screw to compress the rubber spindle which grabs a hold of the sleeve… prob. explained in the user manual?

Are you using the washer on top of the spindle that compresses the rubber drum over which the sanding sleeve fits?
