You have multiple problems that may well justify withholding rent. Perhaps others familiar with the process can chime in on this. If it were me, I would get a lawyer, or at least obtain pro bono legal advice from a legal clinimc before continuing.
For starters, however, I would write a DETAILED letter to the landlord and send it to him ceritified mail, immediately, if this has not been done.
: I encountered the following conditions after paying 1st month rent, plus 2 months security deposit:
: - no hot water
: - toilet not flushable
: - wall panels not attached, just leaning against wall, no molding
: - dishwasher broken
: - washer/dryer broken, no laundry facilities nearby
: - dirt falling from ceiling daily
: I was 'promised' that these would be fixed by the time I moved in, but it has now been 1 month with no progress. Am I entitled to a refund on the first month?
: I believe that I am also entitled to a refund on any amount over a 1 month deposit, as well?
: PLEASE ADVISE.
