Re: dishwasher replace problem
Both the range and the dishwasher are likely "zero clearance" appliances, meaning that there are no minimum distances to adjacent materials. So it should be safe to put them next to each other.
Now whether that's a practical idea may be debatable, but it's certainly not unsafe.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
