It is your landlord's job to repair and maintain your rented home. They must fix or replace anything that is in bad condition or does not work properly.

It does not matter if your rental agreement says something different or if you knew about the problem when you agreed to rent the place. The law says your landlord is responsible.

You are responsible for keeping your own rental unit clean, unless your rental agreement says your landlord will do it.
