          Uncheck “print color first”. If that doesn’t work then yes you need to prime your white.

                      Did you do a white ink recirculation ?
                      White ink will become grayish ( opaque) if left unused for a few days. Shake Bottles or tanks gently and also lines and dampers, and print out a 5 inch square of white also helps.
                      Also note that most users do a DUAL pass of white to get a real solid white base. That means TWO passes of white, then the color. Allow for some small dry time. I've seen some printers use a heat gun to get a good dry.

                        How to do that

                          Recirculation means that if you are not using your WHITE ink everyday, it will separate, and needs to be shaken to mix back together. Most DIY DTG must do Manual recirculation.
                          Cartridges need to be gently agitated, or tanks/bottles if tank-based. Dampers can be damper pulled ( and never spill any ink on printhead area - use cloth under each damper when doing your ink-pulling) and lastly print out a 4 inch square of white ink. Cleanings are also helpful.
