First, I would suggest consulting the Cycle Charts in both the washer and dryer manuals. The Quick Wash cycle in your WF448 is estimated to take only 38 minutes and the Normal wash, with no extra options, should take approximately 54 minutes. A typical dryer load should take approximately one hour, depending on the size of the load, the weight of the fabrics, the level of heat selected, and how much water was removed during the washer's spin cycle.
Please keep in mind that the times on the charts are estimates and can vary depending on water pressure, load size, whether the appropriate amount of HE detergent is used, and what options were selected. If your wash times are significantly different, it could be helpful to determine if the machine is leveled properly. If it is not, this could effect the washer's ability to spin properly as well, which would cause the cycle to take longer in both the washer and the dryer.
Here is a link to a brief video providing troubleshooting assistance including tips for leveling the washer: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/o...
I hope this helps!
