SOURCE: Water drips out of steam holes
I suspect that by placing it on its heel rest the water from the tank is not allowed to enter into the steam chamber and when you go into ironing mode there is a rush of water that is cooling down the sole plate to below steaming temperature. Try keeping it in the horizontal position on a heat proof pad and press the steam button just before going into ironing mode.

SOURCE: Rowenta Steam Iron Leak
Yes, my rowenta model DX6700 is also leaking from the heal. I bought this iron after having a GE for ten years because I thought it would iron my clothes better. I've had it less than two years. How frustrating!!!!!!

SOURCE: Rowenta Steam Iron Leak
I have purchased two Rowenta irons. Both have the problem with water leakage. The entire iron looses all of it's water....both in the stand up position and the sitting down position. This happened after a couple of months for both items. I contacted Rowenta and they never responded. I will never purchase another item from them. Obviously, the irons must be defective. I'm going to contact consumer affairs.

That means that water is not heated properly and does not produce steam.
Try a complete descaling, often this happens because the water reservoir and heating element is covered with scale.

SOURCE: Steam iron residue on suit pants
I would send them to the drycleaners and point out the contamination.
If they were mine, I would treat them with a little white vinegar; the white deposits are caused by a buildup of calcium in your iron.
Don't put the vinegar directly on the trousers but use a clean cloth with some vinegar on it and gently massage the deposits.
It may stink, but it is wise to now and then run it warm (only) with some white vinegar which will dissolve the deposits. Put it on a heat-proof surface (such as a stove grate) so it can stand flat otherwise not all of the deposits will get soaked with vinegar. After letting it soak warm, run several tanksful of plain water to remove the vinegar and shake it over the sink in case there is chunks (very well could be) that have been loosened.

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.
God bless you
