Here is the code :

i = 1
j = ActiveSheet.Cells(ActiveSheet.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
Do While i < j

If ActiveSheet.Range("A" & i).Value = "subtotal" Then
ActiveSheet.Rows(i).Delete
i = i - 1
j = j - 1
Else
i = i + 1
End If

Loop

This code will check all cells in the active sheet to see if "subtotal" exists in any row and remove that row if so:
Sub Delete_Subtotal_Rows()
    'based on code from dlmille, Experts Exchange Q_27636554
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim r As Range
    Dim chkRow As String
    Dim rng2 As Range
    Dim r2 As Range
    Dim rDelete As Range
    Dim lngLR, lngLC As Long

    lngLR = Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
    lngLC = Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Column
    
    Set rng = Range("A2", Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell))
    
    For Each r In rng
        Set rng2 = Range(Cells(r.Row, 1), Cells(r.Row, lngLC))
        For Each r2 In rng2
            chkRow = chkRow & Trim(r2.Value)
        Next r2
        If InStr(1, chkRow, "subtotal") > 0 Then
            If rDelete Is Nothing Then
                Set rDelete = r
            Else
                Set rDelete = Union(r, rDelete)
            End If
        End If
        chkRow = vbNullString
    Next r
    If Not rDelete Is Nothing Then rDelete.EntireRow.Delete
End Sub

Were the Subtotals created using the Subtotal Wizard?

If so, the Subtotal Wizard also has an option for removing Subtotals. This will remove the rows as required.

Thanks
