Tenant or Landlord? Who pays? (Istanbul)


I rent a fully-furnished apartment ın Istanbul. Recently, I had to take care of two minor issues: the washing machine's door needed replacing and a minor electrical problem in the kitchen. I paid around Protected content for these. When I asked the landlord if I can deduct this from my rent, she said that such costs are not covered by landlords in Turkey; only building-related costs are covered by her.And since this is my 2nd year in the apartment and I have been a good tenant, she said that she would not increase the rent which is normal in Turkey.

So it is right and normal for small apartment issues to be paid by the tenant and not the landlord? I would appreciate any information! thanks
