We recently enabled Writeback so that users can change their own passwords on their accounts from Office.com. The problem now is that even if it's enabled and you can try to change the password every password you try to change to will end up with an error saying.
This password did not meet the requirements for the length, complexity, age or history of your company's password policy.
Here are 4 example password i have tried to change to while still getting that error:
Anyone got any idea of why this is happening ?

I've just resolved this same issue. As others have pointed out this may boil down to your default domain policy > password policy.
I made the mistake of assuming that "unsetting" the minimum password age in the group policy would be adequate but I actually had to set the minimum password age to 0 instead to allow users to change their passwords immediately.
