I have reread this thread and I think this is normal :-)

Your user gets locked out because their password has expired.
You unlock the user and set their password expiration to three days.
Your user changes the password but this does not effect the expiry.
After three days they get locked out again.

Rinse and repeat :-)

You are going about this the wrong way, you need to remind them that
their password will expire before it does.
