Question about Leviton Electrical Supplies
Currently the easyset has three wires (excluding green ground) White, Red, Black. White connect to White in wall, Red connects to black, and Black connects to black. How can I replace that with a Leviton dimmer with just a black and red screw (excluding other two-way red screw for multiple poles).
Bill Boyd is wrong red can connect black. As it can be a switch leg for a ceiling fans light kit. Or it could be a traveler"I

Red never connects to black as that is power to neutral if wired correctly
get in a qualified electrician to check the wiring and help you install the unit

hook up the red to red
black to black
green to bare wire
tie white wire to other whites in back of switch box in the wall.
If no whites in there cap it off with a wire connector.

ALL you really need to worry about is the white and black wire that you hooked up before. The green ground screw is not needed. If you have a bare wire completely bare all the way, you can hook it to the green, but it is not required to work.
The other 2 screws are for the switch. It does not matter which wire goes where, as the switch just puts them together, and takes them apart.

I'm not sure if this is going to work in your case, but I'm pretty sure it will...
Green to ground (probably bare)
Black to black
White to the red that's not labeled 3-way
wire nut on the red labeled 3-way
That should fixya!

You are correct in assuming green is the ground and connects to bare copper wire. Black is always the HOT wire and should be attached to the black wire. Red wire connects to white wire.
