Why is my Kenmore washer emitting a burning odor after replacing the motor coupler?

I replace the motor coupler on my Kenmore washer model 110.28902790. It works fine but putting off a burning smell. Whats up? I took the cabinet back off and felt the pump, motor, & gear box and none of them were excessively hot. Could I have gotten some dust in the motor, or perhaps some of the shavings off the old coupler? Or is the new coupler now putting extra strain on the motor and/or gear box?
