Hi, I'm Mike and I'll be assisting you. Please stand by while I review your question.
To find the problem you'll need a 2 wire voltage tester. Need to test not guess
With it set to a 250V setting or higher, put one probe on the ground wire and the other to the dimmer connections one at a time. One will be hot all the time the other will drop voltage with dimmer settings. Let me know what you find.
Well that sounds like it is corrected.
Very good, let me know if you still need assistance.
