Q. Apple Loops that are installed on my Mac don't show up in GarageBand's Loop Browser, how do I fix this?

A. There are several things to check.

First, make sure that the "view" popUp menu over GarageBand's Loop Browser is set to "Show All"

Then, note ...

that Apple Loops in a different time signature than your project, will not be displayed. Additionally, by default, GarageBand's loop browser only displays loops within two semitones of the key of your project. Turning off "Keyword Browsing" in GarageBand's preferences will allow all Apple Loops to be displayed regardless of key (the time signature requirement still applies).

Finally, some categories, like vocal and harp, do not come with a standard installation, and not all loops in a sequence come with GarageBand, some loops may be part of one of the Jam Packs, or may simply be in another time signature or Key. If you see no loops, then none of your installed loops fit into the settings of your project.
