Rotary dimmer switch

I had a rotary dimmer switch with two black wires on the bottom next to each other one connected to a red wire coming out of the wall the other to a black wire coming out of the wall there is also a black wire coming out of the wall which wasn’t connected to anything. The switch was working for years and it stopped. I went out and bought rotary universal single pole switch. It has a green a red with a tape another red and a black. I tried everything and not working. In the wall theee is also two whites connected to each other and a white and a black also connected to each other I don’t know what they’re for they were not used in the old switch connection. What do I do I am lost!!
