As you don't mention controls, it is impossible to eliminate 
any of the zillion possible reasons. However, my first reaction 
is that the culprit is 0.1% SDS. 10 kDa is small enough to run 
through membrane. On the other hand, at least something 
should have remain bound, so you are also might have 
problem with sensitivity.
