Dear Uncle Dixer: In our kitchen, the stove and dishwasher are fixed next to each other. Is this wrong per Feng Shui? If yes, how to fix it without replacing any of these appliances? Thanks so much.                   

Answer: In your case, Fire and Water can go together quite well because Fire rises and Water flows down. The stove is above and the dishwasher is below the bench top, so they don’t clash with each other in terms of the Five Phases. Thus, there is no need to worry.

It is, however, not desirable when the stove and the sink are right next to each other.
