The steel wool has probably done quite a lot of damage already, so I don't see you have much to lose by trying it. If you get the problem sorted (or if you need to buy a new iron), try using filtered water or adding a de-scaler to the water before filling and using it, and don't forget to drain the iron after each use.
It's caused by using too much soap powder or fabric conditioner,it doesn't get rinsed away properly and goes greasy & slimy,,,,,if its starting too smell change door seal,,,,,use bicarbonate of soda 1 or 2 times a month, no clothes or detergent,& on a 90 degree wash,,,that should stop it returning
Fabric softener does not wash down into the machine. The hole over the compartment is block by black gunge from conditioner

I had the same problem with my Bosch Classixx 1200 Express.
It was fixed today & I now know what to do in the future if it happens. The water gets into the soap/ conditioner dispenser drawer via 2 pipes. One points to the main detergent compartment and the other to the pre-wash and conditioner compartments. The pipes become clogged with a type of mould. This meant that in my machine the water was bypassing the conditioner. I had already removed the drawer and cleaned it up and cleaned the jets above with an old tootbrush but it hadn't solved the problem. The repair guy used a cable tie (one of those that is quite firm & will lock) and pushed it up inside the bigger jets. This loosened the black gunge. Then ran water thru from start of the basic cycles and all is now OK
