Question: Why do the stairs lower after you raised them? I see no point in that.
The way I've found for the red doors to work: Open the left door, then immediately the right door, then run through the left door, hit the switch, and run out back to the right door, which should still be open. If it's closing, activate it again, and it will open from where it is, instead of all the way from the bottom. This will give you enough time to hit the button.
As for the stairs, as per the suggestions from the previous version, I took out the explanation which I myself thought was too long as well. The button you press raises the stairs via hydraulic pressure. Once you step off the button, the hydraulic pressure immediately begins to decrease. When the pressure gets too low, the stairs cannot be supported any more, causing them to fall back down.
In a game style sense, this means that it is a timed event, which is not uncommon in gameplay, as you will find something similar in, I believe, E1M6 or 7 (I think) where a door stays open for 30 seconds, then closes again, and you have to get through it in time.
