Electric dryer turns off after 5 minutes - is there a simple fix?

I have a Kenmore Model No. 110.64722400 electric dryer that is turning itself off after 5-10 minutes of run time. The dial is set to delicate and the dryer is not overloaded. When the dryer turns on, I can feel the dryer vent is heating up so the heater is working. However, after restarting the cycle 3 times, the dryer continues to shut itself off. Is there a safety feature that could cause this to happen or any recommended checks that I can perform to diagnose the problem and hopefully solve the problem. The dryer was purchased around 2005 and has worked without any problems until now. Thank you for your assistance.
