My chuck roast is tender on bottom and tough on top. Why is this happening and how do I fix it?

I’ve cooked it in a kitchenaid slow cooker for roughly six hours on medium.

Can you flip it over and cook a little longer to even it out?

That’s exactly what I tried last time but it dries it out. I’ve turned up the temperature to try and Tenderize the bottom faster. The only thing I can think of is maybe I’m not putting enough liquid so that it’s cooking through the top? I want this to stop happening.

I’ve never had that happen and I don’t use any liquid. I do smear horseradish on the top, which not only adds incredible flavor, acts as a barrier to hold in moisture.
I hate horseradish ‘as is’ but on the roast gives an amazing flavor!
Also I add carrots and onions and place them under the roast, cover and do not open the lid until it’s done.

I always cook the 'fatter' side on top. Plus I 'baste' it a few times during cooking.
