After applying RO94308 ENHANCEMENT: SUPPORT FOR PASSPHRASE SECURITY to XCOM for z/OS r12,  users can no longer change their passwords with LPASS/PASSWORD .  This affects the administration of RACF users' passwords and introduces significant changes in the administration of RACF users. 
This and other changes happened when Passphrase support was introduced. This is the way it works because of Passphrase and cannot be changed.
.It can no longer be done via the LPASS/PASSWORD parameters, however here are two other methods:

1) do a sendjob (IEFBR14) in which you specify the password change or 
2) (most common) you can modify your USERIDs either to not expire or not require passwords.
