Could it just be a different keyboard layout at the time you changed 
that password, compared to the keyboard layout now that you try to open 
that LUKS partition?

Did you really delete the old password?
Usually you have to set a new password and then remove the old password.
Otherwise, you still have two enabled slots, and the old password (or 
key file) still works.
