Long wash times and wet clothes with a Samsung front-loading washing machine -- please help!

I bought a Samsung front-loading washer a few months ago -- it's a model WF350ANW like this one
, all-white chassis with the steam feature. The problem is that it often takes way
too long to wash a load.
Example: yesterday I ran a load of three towels and six or seven shirts on the Delicate cycle (one of the shirts needs to be washed cold, and the Normal cycle won't do cold). The washer said it would take 45 minutes, but I timed it at well over 90, and the clothes were still wet in the end. It often seems to get stuck at "11" or "7" minutes for what seems like ages, but there are no other obvious symptoms or error codes.
This happens all the time... not with every load, but I've timed some of them at over two hours! I called Samsung and they sent someone out to level the machine and replace the pressure sensor and circuit board, but it's still doing it, so I figured I'd ask the hive-mind before I call for an RMA number. Any suggestions?
