In my bathroom, ive got 2 switches that control the 5 bulb fixture over the sink. I replaced one with a 3-way switch dimmer, but not the other. When the dimmer is at the lowest setting, everything is fine, but when I raise the brightness, its flickers and buzzes. Where did I go wrong?

if the lights are LED it could be that the dimmer is not compatible with LEDs.
Thanks for the reply! The dimmer description says LED compatible. The bulbs are:

"BR30 LED Bulb 11W=65W, 3000K Warm White, 850 LM, E26 Base, Dimmable, Indoor Flood"​
