you are setting the account to expire and not the password. IS the net time wrong?
try it via command line
"   /EXPIRES:{date | NEVER}    Causes the account to expire if date is
                              set. NEVER sets no time limit on the"

hi

load up a command prompt

net time \\timesrv /set /yes
see this document  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314090 here is a list of time servers http://support.microsoft.com/kb/262680


and try the expire command line via wmi

You can try set password expiration via WMI, using wmic command line like this,

cmd> wmic path Win32_UserAccount where Name='testusername' set PasswordExpires=false
