Hi,

Are you talking about Sensor Bar Assembly Part # 33001809

If so you want to connect one wire to each metal bar.

One wire on each strip. When wet clothes rub against the 2 bars. that discharges a capacitor on the dryness board. If the clothes is dry the loaded cap causes the control to advance to end of cycle.
