Welcome to FixYa.
On the AEG dryers there actually are fuses for the heating circuit, usually two.
If you remove the back cover you should find a couple of fuse links in series with each element. There are 2 fuses ( which look like resistors ) on the inside of the element about 20mm up. These will be the non reset-able thermal fuses.
Also when replacing that back cover it is crucial the seal be in good condition as this will render your efforts futile once you re-install the back panel be allowing air to move across the element in a manner it shouldn't.
I will also inform you to check for negative air pressure in a room/closet not allowing enough make-up air to flow across the heater/fuses. ( if it's in a room closed, make sure there is a vent in the door or some other air supply for make-up )
The other factor which causes these fuses to trip is poor venting and opening the door during operation.
I don't have a part number, but the fuses typically come in a kit with a new heater as well.
Let me know what you find or if you have any trouble understanding my post so I can clarify.
I'll try to provide further assistance should you need it in any manner I can.
