Founded in 1893 in Newton, Iowa, the Maytag Corporation is a well-known appliance manufacturer and a division of the Whirlpool Corporation. Maytag's Jetclean Plus dishwashers are undercounter, large capacity dishwashers that can wash up to 14 place settings per load and are made especially for use with rinsing aids such as Jet-Dry. Occasionally, the dishwasher's electronic control panel malfunctions, activating the demo mode. In demo mode, the control panel lights will flash, but you will be unable to run any dishwashing cycles. Reset the control panel to get the dishwasher to function normally.
