Installed a dimmer and breaker trips


I just bought a house and when I changed out a light switch in a hallway with a dimmer. It has a second switch on the second floor. All appears to work fine until i put the switch back in the wall and then once i use the switch which i did not change, the breaker trips?

You replaced a 3-way switch with a dimmer ?
Is the dimmer a 3-way dimmer ?
