The below code helps to hide the checkout field when a particular shipping option is selected. All you need to do is copy the code and paste it in Appearance>> Editor>>functions.php file.

add_filter('woocommerce_checkout_fields', 'xa_remove_billing_checkout_fields');

function xa_remove_billing_checkout_fields($fields) {
$shipping_method ='free_shipping:1'; // Set the desired shipping method to hide the checkout field(s).
global $woocommerce;
$chosen_methods = WC()->session->get( 'chosen_shipping_methods' );
$chosen_shipping = $chosen_methods[0];

if ($chosen_shipping == $shipping_method) {
unset($fields['billing']['billing_address_1']); // Add/change filed name to be hide
return $fields;
