There are a lot of DIVA models and you did not post the model number. There are multple configurations and wiring methods.

Testimonial: "its a Diva CL 153. I dont think its related. I've take the dimmer out of line completely and the breaker continues to trip off when i switch it on. wondering if moving the wires in the box is shorting out somewhere?"
This video from the Lutron site shows the Diva switch but it is the video for the Skylark single pole switch also. It makes no mention of one wire being a larger gauge and does not differentiate which wire connects to line power and which to load. I do not think the wire gauge makes any difference.

The dimmer should have nothing to do with the tripped breaker... Just disconnect the dimmer as a test. The dimmers are normally in series with the hot side of the line and if they short the controlled lights will remain on, if they open, then the lights will not come on at all. If the machine had somehow been plugged into the lights, then that probably blew the dimmer.
The floor cleaner MAY have overloaded the wiring and the breaker MAY not have protected the wiring and there is melted insulation and a short someplace.
If you can't find the smoking gun, get an electrician to evaluate the problem for your own safety.

SOURCE: I tripped the breakers to
Do other things on this circuit work??? Are you sure that the circuit breaker reset and it is on again....
Sometimes the power off and power on cycle will surge the dimmer enough to kill it...
I would get a meter and make sure you still have power at the switch...
