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.

Before ripping into the dryer, with the dryer running, check the vent outside. There should be a rather strong air flow. I'll bet you have little or maybe no air flow. Check behind the dryer to make sure you don't have squished flex duct. If you have flex pipe, try running the dryer for a few minutes with the dryer pulled out into the room to stretch the vent out, and check outside airflow again. Try to eliminate all or as much of the flex stuff as you can, replacing it with aluminum dryer vent pipe. (tape joints with foil duct tape) Clean out remaining dryer vent. (there are special brushes you can buy to clean out vents, but they really only work on ridgid pipe.)

SOURCE: dryer is not heating up
CHECK THERMAL FUSE ON BLOWER HOUSING IF OPEN (BLOWN) ALSO CHANGE HEATING ELEMENT THERMAL CUT-OFF (THERMAL FUSE) 309 DEGREES AND HIGH-LIMIT THERMOSTAT 250 DEGREES. GO TO www.repairclinic.com ENTER MODEL NUMBER AND LOOK FOR PARTS 2986 AND 2651 OR 2924. ALSO LOOK AT PART 2895. WHEN YU GET THERE SCROLL ALL THE WAY DOWN AND CLICK THE RED 100 AND LOOK FOR THESE PARTS ONE OR MORE IS YOUR PROBLEM GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: dryer does not release any heat
Is yours the gas model? If so I need you to look for some things. Open back door panel and see if while trying to light the igniter is glowing orange. Sea Breeze
