When and while can be confusing. Many have this illusion that when and while are substitutes of each other. Although there are contexts at times that these two words seemed to offer relatively the same meaning. But that is not the absolute truth. Consider this:

When I arrived Jane's house to pick her up, she wasn't even dressed. In this sentence, "when"can not be substituted with "while"..

John's dead died when he was 6 years old.

Julie called you when / while you were in the shower. This is ok.
