Any help would be appreciated

Not sure what's wrong.

utils.py
from flask_bcrypt import generate_password_hash
from flask_bcrypt import check_password_hash


def set_password(User,password):
    hw_password = generate_password_hash(password)
    User.passwword = hw_password
    return User

Its hard to tell without the FULL context of the other code using this function.

But from this file I do see 1 problem.

from flask_bcrypt import generate_password_hash
from flask_bcrypt import check_password_hash


def set_password(User,password):
    hw_password = generate_password_hash(password)

    # User.passwword is mispelled   :-) 
    User.passwword = hw_password
    return User

Let me know if that helps. If not the problem may be elsewhere.
