SOURCE: AEG Electrolux Lavatherm 57800:
try cleaning the drum contact on the rear of the machine. It is a carbon brush that contacts the drum spindle. It can get covered in carbon from the brush.Remove the plastic cover containing the contact brush, clean out all carbon dust and lightly sand the drum spindle to remove any surface build-up and ensure a good electrical contact then reassemble.

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.
