From vSphere 5.5 Documentation Center 

"You cannot remove a virtual flash resource if it is configured with host swap cache or if the host has virtual machines configured with Flash Read Cache that are powered on."

Can you confirm that nothing still uses the flash resource? Do you receive an error message when you try to disable it?
