Cleaning dilemma

I was wondering if I could get advice on this....

We recently moved into a house where laundry has become a huge pain in the neck.  Our W/D is in the basement and our bedrooms are on the second floor, and since I injured myself twice trying to carry laundry upstairs, I've decided I'm not going to do that anymore.  Part of having money is being able to pay people to do stuff you don't want to do.

So we have a cleaning woman to whom I pay $150/session, and she has agreed to do the laundry.  But she feels our dryer takes too long, so last time I came home from an exhausting day at work to find dry clothes in the dryer, wet clothes in the washer, and ANOTHER load of wet clothes in a basket.  I literally started to cry because I had a headache and I couldn't deal with three loads of laundry right then.

I don't know what to do.  I feel like there must be a solution to this problem, but I haven't found it.  I don't know if I'm expecting too much from our cleaning woman either.  But I know I don't want to come home on her cleaning days to a shitload of wet clothes I then have to deal with.
