Electrical switch 3 wires


Need Help. I had a dimmer on a kitchen light. I replaced the overhead light with a new fixture with the help of an electrician family member. Was told by the family member that I needed to replace the dimmer switch. When I removed the dimmer there was 3 wires in the switch. That is 3 black 3 white and 3 ground. How do I wire this switch to get power to the outlet and to the basement switch.

How were the wires connected together? There was probably only two of those wires connected to the dimmer. Those two wires connect to your new switch.
