Whats all this layer stuff! Just open levels and click the white eye dropper on the whitish background, it will go white. Simple eh! Use the shadows slider if you want to darken the image a little afterwards.

That's how NOT to do it!

If a white background is required it needs separate treatment. Either separate slightly brighter lighting that is otherwise kept OFF the subject, or separate post processing, that is similarly kept OFF the subject.

Myself, I think fully white featureless backgrounds are a fad that always was intensely boring and is now well passed its sell-by date... (but hey, that is a different matter.)

Even this text panel isn't full white, y'know..[?] Compare it with the white arrow cursor to see..
