You are seeing this issue means you have Jetpack installed in your Website and you have already configured your Website using WordPress.com login.

Let’s Fix the Can’t Type in Password issue for WordPress Dashboard. I recommend you to enable Debug to check issue’s first. It will help you to see if there is any other issue inside your website. 

Login your Website Dashboard using your WordPress account. Then navigate to Jetpack>Settings and scroll down to WordPress.com login section. You will see something like the following screenshot.

I’m sure that you have mistakenly or automatically enabled this WordPress.com login option. Just disable “Allow users to log in to this site using WordPress.com accounts” option. Generally it only add WordPress.com login in WordPress admin login page. But it should not disable Password typing. As you are seeing password disable issue, you should disable WordPress.com login system from the option.

Now log out and visit your Website WP-Admin area. Your problem is fixed and can easily log in to your Dashboard using Username and Password.
