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.
Yes it is white (bottom layer) but it has gradient overlay layer style, shouldnt it apply overlay on that gradient not on original color of bottom layer? Thanks for quick reply
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.
I understand, the problem is that top object doesnt register layer style (color gradient) of vector shape beneath it as its color fill, bottom layer has to be rasterized first
