Question about Lutron #DVW-603PGH-WH 600W White Single Dimmer
There are no repair parts for in-wall electrical devices.
When they go dad you buy another.
Lowes and Home Depot carry inexpensive dimmers.
Look for 3 things:
1) Wattage: most off-the-shelf dimmers are 500-1000Watts. Add up total wattage.
2) If you are dimming incandescent bulbs, dimmer package will say tungsten or incandescent.
Package will say florescent if dimmer also works for florescent bulbs.
3) If dimmer is 3-way, with a dimmer on either end of a room, many times the dimmers are sold as a package of 2 dimmers with 1 dimmer that controls the other dimmer.

What has happened, is that you've got th two "traavelers" reversed on the plain toggle switch. These are the RED and BLACK wires. turn off the power and reverse the position of these wires and the switch should work correctly from either the Dimmer switch or the plain switch.
Here's a link with a diagram, which might not exactly match your circuit configuration, but you can also watch a short video that explains how 3-way switches work.
It is just a matter of getting the travelers on the correct screws in order for the circuit to operate properly from either switch. Also, depending on the type of dimmer you've installed, the other switch will only turn the lights on at the dimmer setting that you've left the dimmer switch in. So be sure that you're not turning the dimmer all the way down before you shut it off (at the dimmer) otherwise, the other 3-way switch won't be able to turn the lights on, regardless of whether you've got the travelers in the correct locations.
Remember to turn the power off to the circuit you're working on while you rewire it and flip the breaker back on when you're done.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

You posted under Leviton rotary dimmer.
Lutron and Leviton have many 3-way dimmer styles, and both make 3-way rotary dimmers.
I remember years ago replacing 3-way switches with dimmers and having same experience as you. One dimmer has to be ON for the other dimmer to dim.
Later I learned when you replace both 3-way switches with dimmers, you buy a control-and-companion dimmer set. One dimmer is main, and it lets you dim from both locations. The two dimmers communicate with each other electronically. Buy these dimmers at lighting store that specializes in fixtures and dimmers. Ask for most experienced salesperson.
I checked to see if rotary dimmers are made in the companion set. And neither Leviton or Lutron show 3-way companion set rotary dimmers.
1) Leviton spec sheet on rotary 3-way dimmers does not show companion dimmer. This indicates that Leviton rotary dimmers don't have capability of communicating with each other.
2) Lutron has image of 3-way rotary dimmers.
Image shows single rotary dimmer in 3-way & 4-way circuit.
This tells me that Lutron does not have companion dimmer for 3-way rotary dimmer.
