SOURCE: bobbin tension
If the looping is happening on the underside, it is your top tension that is to blame, conversely looping on top is bobbin tension.........take a look HERE for detail on cleaning lint buildup.
Top tension should be set around the middle of the range, usually 4 - 6.
I would not advise playing with bobbin tensions, however, you can take the needle plate off to clean the hook race area (where bobbin case sits) ...this is good housekeeping, my wife does this every time she replaces the bobbin....just take it out and clean the bobbin case and the fixed metal hook race with a small brush to remove lint, if there appears to be fine dirty deposits, a cloth or cotton bud (Q tip) moistened (not soaked) with methylated spirit will do the trick.

SOURCE: 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.

Have you got the stitch width selector on zero ? If not, it may be wanting to sew a small zig zag........if that is OK, ....
Make up some samples of the problems, call the dealer and arrange to take it back to show them the results and either have it adjusted, or show you what needs to be set where to achieve the results you need...........it is under warantee, and you should expect it to function correctly.
I would not advise you fiddle with anything other than tensions and stitch selector on such a new machine.
Ask if you can have a 15min familiarisation lesson on the machine........we actually offer 3 x 30min free lessons on the use of a new machine so our customers can get the maximum benefit from their purchase.
It has proven to be a good business decision, as we get fewer frustrated phone calls and folks actually go and use the machines properly from day one.

Try adusting the bobbin thread instead of the top. Always make sure to insert the bobbin so the thread is pulling in a clock wise direction. Both threads top and bobbin should have about the same resitance when pulled.
