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.

Yup, shortly after I posted this question I was able to find that it was indeed the valve coils. Very easy to get to and replace. Cheap too! Got both of them for about $20 thru www.appliancepartspros.com. Same parts would have cost about $70 thru Sears direct.
Patrick, they are located on the burner unit under the drum in the front left. You can get a diagram of the burner unit by looking up Parts for your model # at Sears.com.
Only tricky thing is you may need to have someone help hold the tumbler in place when you put the belt back on the motor. Personally I found it easier to use two hands to manipulate the belt around the motor and tension bracket and have my wife hold the drum in place rather than to try and balance it myself.

Have you checked the lint trap and also the vent hose? If you have yet to do that try it. Also make sure that the vent line is not crushed. It needs to be wide open
