High everybody, i am working in cs6 and starting to frustrate more and more, tried everything and nothing seems to work. Layer blending modes just seems to stop working at one moment, or at certain layers, i dont know. I have two layers one on top of other, and when i set blending mode on top layer everything just goes white, I will post screenshot of my ps, so if anybody can help me pls.. Thanks!
Looks like the Shape layer on which you've put the Layer Style Pattern Overlay in Overlay mode is white. If so, then the resulting white is correct. Overlay mode makes no change to a channel when 0 or max value (255 for 8-bit) is in the underlying pixel.
I think your problem Shape layer named "pattern overlay" is solid white, and white is not modified by the Layer Style Pattern Overlay attached on top because the PO is in Overlay mode. Why did you choose Overlay mode - what result did you intend to achieve?
I wanted to do some quick tutorial and this is the one i chose to kill boredom... http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/designing-tutorials/creating-a-cool- 3d-web-design-effect/ (step 10) if you have time look into it.
The guy copies white rectangular background layer with radial gradient fx (dark red) on top, disables gradient and applies pattern overlay fx with overlay blend mode, so he just inserts pattern onto header layer and result is header with radial gradient and pattern, i know what you are saying and probably know how to do it some other way, but i am really buged how he did it, is it because he worked in older v. of ps?
p.s. this means then that in order for pattern overlay fx to work in overlay blend mode - shapes must have color (not working when colored with #fff or #000) - right?

I guess you meant #FFFFFF (black) and #000000 (white).
In 8-bit per channel mode, any channel that contains #FF (decimal 255) or #00 (decimal 0) will be unaffected by an Overlay blend. So pure black, white, red, green, blue, RGB-cyan, RGB-magenta, RGB-yellow will not be affected.
