Suction with my pump

I have an inground pool and have a hayward super pump. Just purchased last season. When we went to stat the pump this year, the basket is filling with water but it is not moving fast enough to give us the suction to even hold the skimmer basket down,. When I turn the valve to "backwash" , "drain", and rinse, we have perfect suction. We just are not getting any suction when the valve is in "filter" mode

First thing to check is the removal of any winterizing plugs in the return lines. Sometimes plugs are fitted inside the lines in the pool making them not obvious. Secondly, check that any valves in return line are open. Many never lube type valve handles are oppositely positioned as compared to ball valves. If the multiport valve hasn't been tampered with, then there really is no other place to look. The flows everywhere but back to pool.
