Is there a Download file size limit in the WebFTP panel or is DreamHost just slow? It would be nice if they actually had a notice letting users know about the file size limit.

I know there's an upload limit when using WebFTP, but I'm not aware of any sort of download size limit.
How big is the file you're trying to download? Have you tried downloading it with a stand-alone FTP client?
I have regular FTP access, but it is much quicker to upload using the panel, so I figured it would also be quicker to download using the panel. The file size is at least 2 mb.
