I have failure codes, now what?

Hi - this is a 6-year old Maytag Gas Dryer. Problem was that it was taking longer to dry, and things weren't dry when the sensors said they were. So I replaced the sensors and thermistor, and cleaned all the lint out of the trap assembly and fan as best I could. (also cleaned the hi-limit thermostat since it was next to the thermistor).
Didn't help really. Takes somewhat longer to dry things, although they're more dry (but not entirely dry) when the sensor says they are.
So I bought the service manual, ran all the diagnostics on the control panel (they passed) and checked the history of failure codes. Two codes repeated several times:
Selected dryer temperature not reached - code 21
Heater on and drum temp not increasing - code 14
Unfortunately, the service manual doesn't say what to replace. Does anyone know what parts this implies are broken?
