Because delete_row returns a boolean based on if it succeeds or not I tend to clean the repeater field with a while loop by removing the first row until there is no rows left. Note the semicolon in the end of the line so we are just looping that while condition and not doing anything else. If needed, you can give post_id as a third parameter.
while (delete_row('images', 1));
