I could fix it if I just had the part!

I am full of domestic rage, and it is all directed at my dryer.

The drum stopped spinning. After some thorough investigation, I have learned that it needs a new belt and idler pulley. All of this I learned this afternoon.

What I also learned this afternoon is that you can't buy these parts anywhere. This should be one of the easiest DIY projects ever, but I can't do it because I can't get a hold of new parts unless I order them online.

I went to several hardware/appliance stores, and they all looked at me like I was an idiot. "Of course we don't sell those things, you fool! What were you thinking?"

And then an old man told me to look in the phone book for a company that doesn't exist anymore.

And yes, I know I can air dry my clothes. That is not the point.
