Kidney Bean Help!

So, last night, around 7, i dumped a pound of kidney beans in cold water to soak. Today, around 3:30, i rinsed them, and put them in a very large soup pot, filled it with water, and let them simmer. It's been about 3 hours, and the skins have broken, but the beans aren't soft.

Can I save them?

If so, how?

And, what went wrong?

I'm new to using dried beans, but they are so much cheaper than cans, and pressure cookers are not an option. I made black bean soup with dried beans fine last weekend...
