Check to make sure that your water tank fill valve is turned off.

are the shut offs on the water distribution panel turned to "on"?
is the valve on the incoming side of the fresh water pump open? (that is if you have that valve)

Mine has a selector valve between the tank and the pump. It's used to select the tank as a source for the pump, or a flexible hose that's dropped into a gallon of anti freeze. If you have such a valve and it's set for the wrong "source" you would get the problem you are describing...

it could be a valve left open between the pump outlet and the tank. This will cause the water to run in a circle.The pump could also be air locked. To check this, crack open the outlet hose at the pump. Run the pump until you have a strong flow of water. Last you could have a pump that trapped water and froze during the winter. In that case you will have to replace the pump or pump head.

I agree with Jim. Mine does this when I leave the water fill gate valve turned on. The pump just runs in a loop back to the tank.

Check your fresh water fill valve. (the one you open to fill the tank) I bet it is open. If so close it and all will be well. Don't ask how I know this.

So, great tips all around. Don't rule out a plugged water filter buried behind a panel in a bathroom cabinet either.
