You probably have not adjusted you stitch width and length.
Also a manual for this machine is currently being sold on Ebay for $4+. Probably would be a good investment for you.

Help please. How to adjust presser foot. Where to chg stitch length

Please provide the make and model of your machine. There is generally no adjustment to the presser foot for selecting a straight stitch. You just need to use the specific presser foot that the owner's manual recommends for a straight stitch. The adjustment is made to the stitch length and stitch width selectors. But, since we don't know which machine you have, we can't help.

I put the stitch in center of dial but it still does straight.what is wrong

If you want a zig-zag stitch, you need to set the stitch WIDTH selector to a higher number. Sounds like you may be changing the stitch Length selector which simply makes a longer straight stitch.

Cannot get my 332 to do straight stitch

First, clean and oil according to the manual. Be sure to look for small threads and lint that might be stuck between parts. If that doesn't work, try changing the needle (although it shouldn't sew at all if it's a needle issue). If none of that works, It probably needs an adjustment. You will have to take it to an expert.

The straight stitches can be shortened and lengthened utilizing the length selector. If you are attempting to do this with zigzag the stitch will be the same distance but the fabric will appear as if the material hardly moves. This will be changed by using a wide stitch. If you can't truly get a different stitch length on the straight stitch you may need the feed dog adjusted by a pro so that it will give you a longer stitch.

You have 3 knobs/dials on the machine, the top left dials the stitch, the top right sets the length and the bottom right set your width. set it 0 for straight.

How do I change the stiches?

You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.
