The hints aren't appearing on my form

Here is my code. I have tried to get the code to work and I have looked over it at least a dozen times, but it won't work.

//Problem: Hints are shown even when form is valid
//Solution: Hide the hints when form is vaid

//1.Hide hints
  $("form span").hide();

function passwordEvent(){
  if($(this).val().length > 8){
//2.Find out if password is valid
  //2.1Hide hint if valid 

//When event happens on confirmation input
    //Find out if password and confirmation matches
      //Hide hint if match 
      //Else show hint does not match
