Oct 8 '19 at 15:03 comment added Andy Zarzycki I'd bet that the second green wire is indeed an additional ground. Both positions have the same "Ground" symbol. What the pictures don't show is where the thick and thin green wires were connected pre rewiring. Be careful that the thick green wire isn't shorted to the neutral inside the washer, behind the black visible block; if that were so you'd indeed be negating the point of upgrading to 4 wire. Normally 3-wire 220 is two hot's (on opposing phases) and ground; neutral is omitted. So now your new wire would be neutral. The machine was probably installed neutral to gnd, so check that first.

Oct 7 '19 at 4:14 comment added ThreePhaseEel Can you perform a continuity check from the neutral screw on the terminal block to the ring lug on the skinny (lower) grounding jumper, with the dryer unplugged of course? That'll tell us something about where it goes, at least...

Oct 6 '19 at 22:10 comment added Shaun Miller Thank you thank you! I’ll edit with make/model, but the manual doesn’t address mislabelled wires or the additional one at all that I can find. Model DV422EWHDWR/AA. There’s an additional supplemental electrical manual I have a hard copy of that references a SINGLE green/yellow wire in 4 prong setup, but neither the 3-prong nor 4-prong diagrams reference all five of the wires I discovered my dryer setup with while it was still in 3-prong setup.
Oct 6 '19 at 22:01 comment added Daniel Griscom Hello, and welcome to Home Improvement. What make/model is the dryer, and what does the installation manual say? And, you should probably take our tour so you'll know how best to participate here.
