    Just a thought. When you enter the 'last known password', are you entering the password you changed from, or the password you changed to? If the latter, perhaps entering the password you changed from would work. As in 'last known WORKING password'.

    A search for…
    google account loop enter password get code
    …doesn't give anything which looks useful to me.

    Try deleting all your Google services' cookies, and reboot to clear memory.

    Google has a 72-hour security delay in some cases after changing login info, possibly you got caught by that?

    A long-shot might be to create a new Google account, and then try to merge the main products you use with your current account, or at least access your current account from the new one. This HTG article might help:
