The following is the WikiTree Help Page links are specific to your question....

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:DNA

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:How_to_Get_Started_with_DNA

... But in short, you don't just simply upload it to WikiTree itself as WikiTree utilizes a (trusted) 3rd party that links the applicable DNA information via the following GEDmatch link (registration there is required and its Free).

http://v2.gedmatch.com/login1.php:

You then just follow their instructions to upload your DNA file and then you just have to add your GEDmatch ID info within the WikiTree DNA Tests page to link them.

Issues regarding GedMatch is not managed by WikiTree, but GedMatch themselves.

If the above links nor GedMatch is helpful at all, the following answer provided within a similar/same question (asked within the WikiTree G2G forum) is probably your best bet to figure out what's going on.

I do wish you the best of luck! :-)

On the top right of WikiTree pages there is an "Add" button; hover over that and click on the first item which is DNA. Follow the prompts to add your testing company and, for Ancestry, your username (how your name is listed for the DNA test). Be sure to save when you are finished adding the information. It will take about 24 hours to appear on the appropriate profiles of your ancestors.
