Here is what you can try.

There is a command to list all the image id's i.e.,

docker images -q

To remove all the images use the below command i.e 

docker rmi $(docker images -q)

It might happen that some of the images are being used by a container. 

So, you will have to stop those containers.

I hope that the above explanation will resolve your query.
