Lots of sand? You may have a broken lateral in your filter.
To repair, you will have to remove all the sand from the tank to physically inspect.
Might you have changed the sand this year? (top 1/3 needed to be changed every 3 to 5 years normally) If you changed the sand ... did you put water in the filter tank first? If not ... there is a good possibility you broke a lateral (a small pipe with slits in it) when you put the sand into the filter.
It could be that you have too much sand in the filter. Check the owners manual for the clearance - top of sand to top of filter.

It sounds like your automatic pool cleaner might have a leak that is causing the pump to lose its prime. Check the hose to make sure that there are no leaks or cracks. Check the vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system. Look and check the pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing O-rings.
