Step 1: Import your video into Premiere Pro
To begin, launch Premiere Pro and import your video by going to File > Import or simply pressing Ctrl+I (or Cmd+I for Mac users.)

Step 2: Apply the 'DeNoise' effect
In the Effects panel, search for 'DeNoise' and drag it onto the video in your timeline. The DeNoise effect is an audio effect that helps to reduce and remove unwanted noise from your video's audio track.

With your video clip selected in the timeline, open the Effect Controls panel to adjust the DeNoise effect settings. The two main parameters you'll want to work with are the 'Amount' and 'Reduce Noise By.' Start with a lower amount and increase it gradually until the white noise is reduced to an acceptable level. Be careful not to set the amount too high, as it can lead to a robotic or distorted audio quality.

Step 4: Apply the 'Equalizer' effect (optional)
If the DeNoise effect isn't enough to completely remove the white noise, consider adding the Parametric Equalizer effect. This effect allows you to further fine-tune the audio by removing specific frequencies that may be causing the white noise. Simply type 'Parametric Equalizer' into the effects search bar and drag it onto your video clip. Adjust the sliders or use the graphic equalizer interface to eliminate problematic frequencies.

Step 5: Export your video
Once you're satisfied with the results, go to File > Export > Media, or press Ctrl+M (Cmd+M for Mac users) to export your video with the newly cleaned audio. Ensure the 'Export Audio' box is checked in the Export Settings window, and choose your preferred video format and codec. Finally, click 'Export' to save your new, noise-free video!
