I recently changed out my incandescent lights in my kitchen to LED lights there are 3 lights each have 5 LED light bulbs with 2 3 way switches controlling their on/off function. I found the leg side and the power side, I was told to install the dimmer switch on the leg side but when I do that the dimmer switch only dims 1 of the 3 light fixtures> I'm trying to find out why and what can I do to correct this problem to control all of the lights connected to the switch

    A diagram of the switch and light wires showing all hot, switched hot, traveler and neutral wires would help. – manassehkatz-Reinstate Monica Jul 9 '19 at 1:04

    Can you post photos of the insides of the boxes? – ThreePhaseEel Jul 9 '19 at 1:21

    Did it work before with incandescent lights? What kind of LED did you use? Also try putting 1 incandescent in each set of 5 and report back what happens.... – Harper - Reinstate Monica Jul 9 '19 at 1:26
