The transmission pump pulls suction from the bottom of the transmission then directs the flow to the filter housing and into the transmission.  If it is blowing the canister you have a dead head situation going on. Good thing it is blowing the canister and not busting the gear pump.  I would disassemble the filter head and make sure none of the passages are clogged.  Also the  pressure regulator mounted on the torque converter housing could be stuck closed.
