You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & Volts Its well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer, If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat. Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a.. Hi-limit fuses that need to be checked for Continuity

My instinct on this one is to look for a thermal cutout and to try to reset it.
Not familiar with the layout of the Kenmore 110's (they're not marketed in this part of the world), but a good place to start is probably inside the top of the machine.
Before fiddling, turn the power off and unplug the machine.
Look for a metal duct leading into the drum housing. This will probably have the blower mounted at one end, then the element embedded in it, then, before it leads into the drum housing, a collection of thermostats and safety cutouts (usually one or two of each) mounted on the outside of it.
Safety cutouts and thermostats are likely to look something like one of the pictures at http://www.tdspares.co.uk/products.asp?cat=68
Start by looking for cutouts with reset buttons - press the button on any you find and see if this fixes the problem. It's a good sign you've found the right one if it clicks when pressed.
If that doesn't work, use a multimeter to test across the contacts of each thermostat and cutout in turn. They should all have a very low resistance. reset or replace any that don't.
Once you've got the machine working again, you need to find out what made things trip and eliminate the underlying problem. This is usually a matter of cleaning all the accumulated lint out the machine.

Check the voltage at the terminal block where the cord hooks up for 220 volts.
Remove the rear panel and check the thermal fuse located on the upper portion of the heat canister.
Check the Hi-limit thermostat on the bottom portion of the heat canister.
Check all the wires for a burned or loose wire.
Check continuity of the heating element.
